A Spaceman Came Travelling
A spaceman came traveling on his ship from afar 'Twas light years of time since his mission did start And over a village, he halted his craft And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star He followed a light and came down to a shed Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed A bright light of silver shone round his head And he had the face of an angel and they were afraid And the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear" I come from a planet a long way from here And I bring a message for mankind to hear Suddenly the sweetest music filled the air And it went la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la Peace and goodwill to all men And love for the child La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la, oh This lovely music went trembling through the ground And many were awakened on hearing that sound And travelers on the road The village they found by the light of that ship in the sky Which shone all around And just before dawn at the paling of the sky The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly" When two thousand years of your time has gone by This song will begin once again to a baby's cry And it went la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la La-la-la-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la Peace and goodwill to all men And love for the child Oh the whole world is waiting, waiting to hear the song again (la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la) There are thousands standing on the edge of the world (la-la-la-la-la-la-la) And a star is moving somewhere
