JIM'S BIG EGO: unpop for the unpopulous!

play New Lang Syne (Thank God It's Over)

from Hits and Misc BUY slabster

My friends and I were thinking...
Another year has come and gone
And so we started drinking,
And singing New Year's songs.
Like Auld Lang Syne
And Comes a Time
And Prince's 1999
But none of those songs seemed to do it
For us at the time

This year alot of things have come to pass
Raise a glass
Raise a glass
Some made us cry, some made us laugh
Raise a glass
Raise a glass
Next year will be better
The old year is gone forever!

Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
It's Over Now!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over
It's Over Now!

To all our friends and those we've left behind
Sing Old Lang Syne
Old Lang Syne
Though You're Gone You're Never Far From Mind
Old Lang Syne
Sing Old Lang Syne
Let bygones be bygones
Bye-Bye Gone, We're Moving On!

Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
It's Over Now!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over
It's Over Now!

This year many things have come to pass
Raise a glass
Raise a glass
Some things really kicked our ass
Raise a glass
Raise a glass
Come Raise Your Spirits
Sing loud so the dead will hear it!

Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over!
It's Over Now!
Thank God It's Over!
Thank God It's Over
It's Over Now!
Thank God It's Over!
(Thank God It's Over!)
Thank God It's Over!
(Thank God It's Over!)
Thank God It's Over
It's Over Now!
(Thank God It's Over Now!)
Thank God It's Over!
(Thank God It's Over!)
Thank God It's Over!
(Thank God It's Over!)
Thank God It's Over
It's Over Now!
