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
