about

Australian Summer brings Christmas cheer and New Year resolutions. Song has some advise on managing those resolutions.

lyrics

Summer comes but once a year
Barbecues and icy beer
Christmas season lots of cheer
When summer comes around

New Year fireworks sound like guns
Hope you have someone
To give you hope of things to come
When New Year comes around

A list of twenty resolutions
Only leads to confusion
Pick the ones that suit you best
Don’t waste time on all the rest
When New Year comes around

Life is shorter than we know
So when it beckons go!
Don’t hold back unless you must
Chances quickly turn to dust

If you dream must wait some years
Don’t drown it in your tears
We are stronger than our fears
Come the day we fly

New Year fireworks sound like guns
Hope you have someone
To give you hope of things to come
When New Year comes a-round

Life is shorter than we know
So when it beckons go!
Don’t hold back unless you must
Chances quickly turn to dust

A list of twenty resolutions
Only leads to confusion
Pick the ones that suit you best
Don’t waste time on all the rest

New Year fireworks sound like guns
Hope you have someone
To give you hope of things to come
When New Year comes around
When New Year comes around
When New Year comes around
