Bethlehem Lyrics

Lyrics  & Music Walter Hacon

 

The Yanks are coming in the name of god to the holy lands

Here come the bombs and the guns and the money men

Cos black gold fevers broken out my friend in the promised

Lands…

But let the bells ring out again, it’s Christmas day….

Drink up you merry men, cos Christmas is here again

But peace wont return my friend, to these broken lands,

till Jesus walks down main street…in Bethlehem.

What would Jesus think if he could walk these streets again,

And feel the pain and suffering of all his brethren

There’s mothers crying as their sons are dying in the holy

lands, but let the bells ring out again its Christmas day…..

Drink up you merry men, cos christmas is here again

And  peace wont return my friend to these broken lands

till Jesus walks down main street…in Bethlehem.

You’re walking on….consecrated ground,

You’re making war and hate in the holy of holy towns,

Where Jesus said in Bible times…Love and peace to all

mankind…

The father son and the holy ghost caught a plane today,

They hung their  heads  and cried in shame, what’s going on,

The Jews are  building giant concrete walls in the holy

lands,

But let the bells ring out again…its Christmas day…

Drink up you merry men, cos Christmas is here again But

peace wont return my friend, to these broken lands…

till Jesus walks down main street…in Bethlehem.
