[Intro]
Intro is instrumental of first verse

[Verse 1]
  Dm            F                 C             Dm
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar,
Bb    F                C        Bb             
'twas light years of time since his mission did start
F   Dm        Am   Bb                 Dm
And over a village he halted his craft,
       F           C          Bb              C   Dm
And it hung in the sky like a star, just like a star.

[Verse 2]
                 F             C       Dm
He followed a light and came down to a shed,
      F              C          Bb                 C
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed, 
  Dm                 Am  Bb                   Dm
A bright light of silver shone round his head,
    F              C        Bb                  Dm
And he had the face of an angel, and they were afraid.

[Verse 3]
                        F         C            Dm
Then the stranger spoke, he said "Do not fear,
  F           C        Bb              C
I come from a planet a long way from here, 
    F            Am       Bb         Dm
And I bring a message for mankind to hear",
F            C          Bb  C          Dm
Suddenly the sweetest music filled the air.

[Chorus]
    F       Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
F           C           Bb   C
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
F             C              Bb       C             Dm
Peace and goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.

[Chorus]
C    Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
     La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
F           C           Bb   C
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
    C   Bb    Dm
Oh, oh, oh.

[Verse 4]
               F       C                     Dm
This lovely music went trembling through the ground,
    F         C          Bb                C
And many were wakened on hearing that sound, 
F          Dm         Am        Bb           Dm
And travellers on the road, the village they found,
       F             C           Bb             C      Dm
By the light of that ship in the sky, which shone all around.

[Verse 5]
                     F      C               Dm
And just before dawn at the paling of the sky,
  F           C                Bb          
A stranger returned and said "Now I must fly, 
     Dm           Am            Bb            Dm
When two thousand years of your time has gone by,
     F           C          Bb                Dm 
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry".

[Chorus]
    Bb      Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
And it went La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
F           C           Bb     
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Dm          Am          Bb          Dm
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
     F           C          Bb                Dm 
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry".

[Chorus]
       C    Dm          A   Am      Bb          Dm
And it goes La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La, 
F           C           Bb   C
La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
Dm          A   Am      Bb          Dm
La, la, la, La, la, la, La, la, la, La,
F          C              Bb            C       Dm
Peace, goodwill to all of men, and love for the child.

[Verse 6]
                 B              C  Dm
Over the whole world is waiting together,
A   Am     Bb                          Dm
Waiting to hear, to hear the song again
F                     C         Bb                  C
Their lives are standing on the edge of the world
Dm              Am               Bb          Dm
And its started something at the time of the year,
  F         C         Bb               D    G   C   Bb
Song will begin once again to a baby's cry.
