Coloring Club Plus — Christmas 2019

Dec 25

per wikipedia:
Thank God It’s Christmas” is a Christmas single by the British rock band Queen. It was written by lead guitarist Brian May and drummer Roger Taylor. Released on 26 November 1984, the single spent six weeks in the UK charts over Christmas 1984 and new year of 1985, and peaked at number 21.

The song was not originally released on any Queen studio album, appearing only on Queen’s Greatest Hits III, released in 1999, and as the B-side of the single “A Winter’s Tale” from the 1995 album Made in Heaven. However, the track was finally included on the bonus EP packaged with the deluxe edition of their album The Works, remastered and re-released in 2011. No promotional video was filmed for the track; however in 2019, a animated video was released on the Queen Official YouTube channel. [this video]

It appears on the Christmas compilation LP The Edge of Christmas in its full 12″ version with the drum intro. It also appears on the US-only compilation boxed-set The Queen Collection, which consisted of a re-release of the LPs Classic Queen and Queen’s Greatest Hits along with a bonus CD called Queen Talks that included this song, along with a 1989 interview with the band.

 

 

Oh my love
We’ve had our share of tears
Oh my friends
We’ve had our hopes and fears
Oh my friends
It’s been a long hard year
But now it’s Christmas
Yes, it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas

The moon and stars seem awful cold and bright
Let’s hope
The snow will make this Christmas right
My friend the world
Will share this special night
Because it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Night

Thank God it’s Christmas, yeah
Thank God it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
Can it be Christmas?
Let it be Christmas
Every day

Oh my love
We live in troubled days
Oh my friend
We have the strangest ways
All my friends
On this one day of days
Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Day

Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
Ooh yeah
Thank God it’s Christmas
Yes yes yes yes it’s Christmas
Thank God it’s Christmas
For
One
Day

Christmas, a very merry Christmas to you all

Songwriters: Roger Taylor / Brian May
