A Holiday Song for All of Us

Peace on Earth

My dear friends,

Here is a holiday song to last throughout the New Year. Please join me in singing it once you've learned it.

Thank you for being here and working with me. Thank you for being you and helping to fill this world with music and love. - Yours in song, Jeannie Deva

Verse 1

Peace on earth, can it be

Years from now, perhaps we’ll see

See the days of glory,

See the day when men of good will

Live in peace, live in peace again

Verse 2

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

 

ABOUT THIS SONG

Peace on Earth / Little Drummer Boy is a Christmas song with an added counterpoint performed by David Bowie and Bing Crosby. "Little Drummer Boy" is a Christmas song written in 1957, while the "Peace on Earth" tune and lyrics were added to the song especially for Bowie and Crosby's recording.

The song was recorded on 11 September for Crosby's 1977 television special, Bing Crosby's Merrie Olde Christmas. The pair exchanged dialogue about what they do for Christmas before singing "Little Drummer Boy" with a new counterpoint with original lyrics written for the special, "Peace on Earth". Bowie's appearance has been described as a "surreal" event, undertaken at a time that he was "actively trying to normalize his career" Crosby died on October 14, just over a month after recording the special. In the U.S., the show aired on 30 November 1977 on CBS.
