John Lennon – Happy Christmas (War is Over)

The words written in bold are incorrect. Can you correct them?

So this is Christmas
And what have you thumbed
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have a run
The near and the dear ones
The cold and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

And so this is Christmas
For weak and for Kong
For rich and the poor ones
The world is so strong
And so happy Christmas
For black and for white
For mellow and dead ones
Let’s stop all the fight

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

And so this is Christmas
And what have we thumbed
Another year over
And a new one just begun
And so this is Christmas
I hope you have a run
The near and the dear ones
The cold and the young

A very merry Christmas
And a happy New Year
Let’s hope it’s a good one
Without any beer

War is over
If you want it
War is over
Now…
