Let’s Rock in the New Year

Updated on January 3, 2013

Let’s rock in the New Year

Like no other year before

Let’s do all that we can

To make this year sing

Let’s rock in the New Year

Do our very best

Put life to the test

And live like we’ve never lived before

Let’s rock in the New Year

Do all those many things

That we wanted to do

But never did before

Life has given us

Another year

Let’s take it and make it rock

Like never before

Life is so full of wonder

Full of color and joy

We need to destroy all the evil

And do all we can to make this world good again

Let’s rock in the New Year

By doing good for others

Doing good for children

And all creatures big and small

Let’s rock in the New Year

And spread love all around

Let’s make it infectious

And spread grins from shore to shore

Let’s rock in the New Year

Let’s make this year a blast

Make it sing and make it dance

Let’s do all that we can to make the good times last

      Such a fun and lively poem, waking me up from this flu stupor. Love the music and voice of B.B. King, he makes me smile, no matter how I am feeling. What a great poem, wonderful.
