Little orphans in the snow / With nowhere to call a home
Start their singing, singing

Waiting through the summertime / To thaw your hearts in wintertime
That’s why they’re singing, singing…

Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
The sweet taste in your mouth / Turned bitter in its glass
Israel…in Israel…

Shattered fragments of the past / Meet in veins on the stained glass
Like the lifeline in your palm
Red and green reflects the scene / Of a long-forgotten dream
There were princes and there were kings
Now hidden in disguise / Cheap wrappings of lies
Keep your heart alive with a song from inside

Even though we’re all alone, we are never on our own when we’re singing

There’s a man who’s looking in, and he smiles a toothless grin
Because he’s singing, singing…
See some people shine with glee, but their song is jealousy
Their hate is clanging, maddening…
In Israel…will they sing Happy Noel?
Israel…in Israel..in Israel will they sing Happy Noel ?
