Well you turn and you blink there it goes
one year slips by as quick as the last
Come tomorrow morning it’s a chapter in our past
the bands in key the drinks are free the egg nogs good and strong
As we make the leap from old to new please take these words along

Here’s hoping that the next year is fabulous
Laden with sweet things, wonder and full of bliss
And that secret wish you don’t even speak it comes true
(you know the one)
An old good friend you’d thought you’d lost forever
Finds their way back to you
And we all meet up next year to sing a round two.

And the list of the things that you swore you’d do got tossed a couple months in
but come tomorrow morning we start brand new again
May your success come quickly make your failures softly felt
And may big mistakes you learn from be made by someone else

And in the days of hence I
hope you swing for the fence
and outrageous fortune knows your name
And in the months to come
I hope you strike out some cause
That means you’re still in the game
You still got it

Here’s hoping  that the next year is fabulous
Come next ball drop, you’ve got someone to kiss
And the secret wish you don’t even speak it comes true
Some bold move you thought you’d lost forever
Comes shining through
and we all meet up next year to sing a round two
