Come fill up your glasses with whiskey and beer
      E                     B7         E7
And drink a full glass to a happy new year
        A                         D             E7
To our sisters and brothers, and may they live long,
     A                        D           A
So lift up your glasses and join in this song
 
E7         A                        D           E7
So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,

To peace on earth and good will among men

      A                         E7          A
Long life to the miners the whole world around,
      E                     B7         E7
Who spend their days in a hole underground,
        A                         D             E7
Whose road is a tunnel, whose day is the night,
     A                        D           A
Out of danger and darkness they bring light

 
E7         A                        D           E7
So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,

Our thanks too the fishermen and safe may they toil,
      E                     B7         E7
And also to the farmer who turns up the soil;
        A                         D             E7
To the ploughmen and shepherds and all men of worth,
     A                        D           A
Whose joy is to harvest the fruits of the earth.

 
E7         A                        D           E7

To peace on earth and good will among men

      A                         E7          A
Here's to the drivers and firemen and the rest of the team,
      E                     B7         E7
Who keep the stock rolling by diesel and steam,
        A                         D             E7
To the cleaners and shunters who work night and day,
     A                        D           A
And the track laying gangs on the permanent way.

 
E7         A                        D           E7
So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
     A        D             E7         A
To peace on earth and good will among men

      A                         E7          A
A toast to the casual laboring man,
      E                     B7         E7
Who lives where his work is, who works where he can,
        A                         D             E7
To the builders and spidermen and bold engineers,
     A                        D           A
May your wages keep rising, lads, over the years.

To peace on earth and good will among men

To the writers and artists, then, let's drink a health,
      E                     B7         E7
To people whose hopes, and whose dreams are our wealth,
        A                         D             E7
Whose tools are but canvas or paper and pen,
     A                        D           A
Whose harvest is the future and the progress of men,

 
E7         A                        D           E7
So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
     A        D             E7         A
To peace on earth and good will among men

      A                         E7          A
Let the men drink a health to their sweethearts and wives,
      E                     B7         E7
And the ladies, being willing, will greet them likewise,
        A                         D             E7
May your pleasures be many, your troubles bu few,
     A                        D           A
May you treasure the day you made one out of two.

 
E7         A                        D           E7
So we'll fill up your glasses and drink once again,
     A        D             E7         A
To peace on earth and good will among men

      A                         E7          A
Let's drink to our children and let us prepare,
      E                     B7         E7
A world where they'll live free from sorrow and care,
        A                         D             E7
A world where goodwill among men is the law,
     A                        D           A
A world without fallout, a world without war.
