CHRISTMAS SOMEDAY … when we have learned …

Someday at Christmas / Men won’t be boys
Playing with bombs / Like kids play with toys
One warm December / All hearts will see
A world where men are free

Mary Blige
Someday at Christmas  / They’ll be no wars
When we have learned / What Christmas is for
When we have learned / What life’s really worth
They’ll be peace on Earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmas time
"Someday at Christmas"

Someday at Christmas / We’ll see a land
With no hungry children/ And no empty hands
One happy morning / People will share
A world where people care

Someday at Christmas / There’ll be no more tears
Where all men are equal / And no man has fears
One shining morning / We’re on our way
From our world today

Marlee Scott
Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmas time

Stevie Wonder
Someday at Christmas / Men will not fail
Hate will be gone / And love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmas time
Someday at Christmas time

Sources and notes

“Someday at Christmas” was written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller (Ronald Norman Miller) and Bryan Wells. This team wrote the song (1967) for Stevie Wonder’s Christmas album. Released during the Vietnam War, “Someday at Christmas” was “one of the first Christmas songs with a social and political message. … John Lennon’s 1971 song ‘Happy Xmas (War Is Over)’” is another of this genre [Note by Bertrand of Paris, France], Song facts, http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?id=9573
