As we all sit around
Enjoying stories and things going down,
We wonder what the New Year will bring.
Lots of bright and happy things,
That is our wish.
But that’s not real life,
Cos at some stage
There is always trouble and strife,
But oh my friends if we all keep near,
We will get through life with support and good cheer.
