Peace On Earth – Little Drummer Boy

PeaceOnEarth.LittleDrummerBoy_CoverThis song was recorded in September 1977 for Bing Crosby’s Merrie Olde Christmas television special. Bing Crosby performs “Little Drummer Boy,” while David Bowie sings “Peace on Earth”, which had just been written for him as a counterpoint to “Little Drummer Boy.” This was reportedly performed after less than an hour of rehearsal.

******************************

“Peace On Earth”

Peace on Earth, can it be

Years from now, perhaps we’ll see

See the day of glory

See the day, when men of good will

Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be

Every child must be made aware

Every child must be made to care

Care enough for his fellow man

To give all the love that he can

I pray my wish will come true

For my child and your child too

He’ll see the day of glory

See the day when men of good will

Live in peace, live in peace again

Peace on Earth, can it be

Can it be
