Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas from London

Hanno cancellato il Natale a Betlemme

They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem
They’ve cancelled peace in Bethlehem
In a land once known as holy the gun is in control
They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem
They’ve cancelled freedom in Bethlehem
They’ve cancelled hope in Bethlehem
They’ve locked the little town behind a ghetto wall
They’ve cancelled Christmas in Bethlehem

Though angels are singing – they’re trapped behind the wall
Yet angels keep singing down in Beit Sahour
And if our Christmas songs and prayers are not to be in vain
We must pull down that prison wall that’s strangling Bethlehem
The wall must fall – the wall must fall
If peace on earth is to come
The wall must fall.

They’ve cancelled wise men in Bethlehem
They’ve cancelled shepherds in Bethlehem
They’ve stopped the wise men at the checkpoint
and the shepherds can’t leave home
They’re under curfew in Bethlehem.

Though angels are singing – they’re trapped behind the wall
Yet angels keep singing down in Beit Sahour
And if our Christmas songs and prayers are not to be in vain
We must pull down that prison wall that’s strangling Bethlehem
The wall must fall – the wall must fall
If peace on earth is to come
The wall must fall.

The wall must fall – the wall must fall
If peace on earth is to come
The wall must fall.
