And the bells were ringing out for Christmas Day

Merry Christmas, everyone! Flist, I love you all and I hope your day is magnificent, and that your nextyear is just as good.

They've got cars big as bars, they've got rivers of gold,
But the wind goes straight through you, it's no place for the old.
When you first took my hand on that cold Christmas Eve,
You promised me broadway was waiting for me.
You were handsome--
--You were pretty. Queen of New York City,
When the band finished playing, they howled out for more.
Sinatra was swinging, all the drunks they were singing,
we kissed on the corner and danced through the night.

The boys of the NYPD Choir were singing Galway Bay,
And the bells were ringing out, for Christmas Day.
