"Ding-Dong, Ding-Dong" as written by and George Harrison....
Ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong

Yesterday, today was tomorrow
And tomorrow, today will be yesterday
So ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong
Ding-dong, ding-dong

    General CommentWhen I read the lyrics now, I think of the transition from the old year to the new. Maybe, George Harrison tried to write a song that should be played on the radio during the time between Christmas and New Years Eve. Maybe he tried, in doing so, to create a new type of song: the New Years Eve song (in analogy with the Christmas song).
    The great and rather special thing about this song is of course that the chorus is a well known melody that a lot of door bells (used to) have. I mean, who would come up with that? Of course, the use of this melody also makes the song more of a good joke than a really great song and potential hit. But who cares. I think it would be a good thing if more artists would write songs like this one. A little humour harms no-one.
