Happy New Year – Abba  Lyrics

December 25, 2008

Album: Super Trouper
Genre: Christmas, Pop

This is one of the most popular Christmas/New Year holiday songs ever. Happy New Year was initially released in 1980 as part of the album Super Trouper. The single was released as a single in Portugal, Brazil and Japan. It was re-released in 1999 and 2008 by getting good positions on Europe charts (Germany #78, Sweden #27 and The Netherlands #15). The song also was translated into Spanish language with the title Felicidad. The teen version got a certified gold in 1999. This ones contained the versions for radio and extended version. Next year, the band will have a new museum which probably is going to be open in Stockholm.



Happy New Year - Abba

No more champagne
And the fireworks are through
Here we are, me and you
Feeling lost and feeling blue
It’s the end of the party
And the morning seems so grey
So unlike yesterday
Now’s the time for us to say

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Sometimes I see
How the brave new world arrives
And I see how it thrives
In the ashes of our lives
Oh yes, man is a fool
And he thinks he’ll be okay
Dragging on, feet of clay
Never knowing he’s astray
Keeps on going anyway…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbour is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I

Seems to me now
That the dreams we had before
Are all dead, nothing more
Than confetti on the floor
It’s the end of a decade
In another ten years time
Who can say what we’ll find
What lies waiting down the line
In the end of eighty-nine…

Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have a vision now and then
Of a world where every neighbor is a friend
Happy new year
Happy new year
May we all have our hopes, our will to try
If we don’t we might as well lay down and die
You and I.
