"Happy Christmas War Is Over" as written by John Winston Lennon and Yoko Ono....
So this is Christmas and what have you done,
Another year over, a new one just begun.

And so this is Christmas, I hope you have fun,
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fears.

And so this is Christmas for weak and for strong,
The rich and the poor ones, the road is so long.

And so happy Christmas for black and for white
For the yellow and red ones let's stop all the fights.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear.

And so this is Christmas and what have we done
Another year over, a new one just begun.

And so happy Christmas we hope you have fun
The near and the dear ones, the old and the young.

A very merry Christmas and a happy New Year
Let's hope it's a good one without any fear.

War is over if you want it, war is over now.

    General Commentas the very first to do the honors i would like to declare that this is a heartrenching song. much more appealing then anything Lenny Kravits could produce. it displays the contrast between war and love. though it is not an original, Dustin certainly improved it. not to point out the obvious, of course. i'm afraid there is no man who can match the great talent of dustin kensrue. (sorry guys)

    General CommentHate to break it to you guys but this is a John Lennon song. Whether or not thrice covered it is irrelevant becuase John Lennon is a better songwriter by default.

    General Commentby default like since you had the last word, your songwriter of choice must be better?
