Watch Night Service


We had a big party
on New Year's Eve.
I know coming from me
that sounds hard to believe.

We talked, we played
and we sang,
everyone was there -
the whole gang!

We do it year
after year,
and believe it or not
there's never any beer.

And the only fight
you may see
is between some kids
ages 1 to 3.

There isn't any whisky,
drugs, or fooling around,
but one thing's for sure,
great love abounds.

We have a
grand ol' time,
and you know what?
It doesn't cost a dime!

If you want to know
what I'm talking about,
we bring in the New Year
with a great big shout.

Because we're at church,
you see,
my husband,
the kids and me.

We're really tired
when it's all done,
but we don't have a hangover
to show for our fun.

Don't you think
that's a pretty good way
to usher in
the New Year's Day?
