LYRICS

We welcome you (we welcome you)

thank you for coming out tonight.
Shut out the pressure for a little while – 
everything is gonna be alright
 
How many ways are there to say that we welcome you
and wish you all the best?
There are so many ways we can say “You are welcome
as a very special guest!”
We welcome you!
 
Buenos Dias – Aloha
Salam alaikum – Willkommen
Bonjour, mon ami
Shalom – konichiwa
Benvenuti – Jambo
Ola, Ni hao, Namaste
 
Sit back, relax and take a break
don’t let the worries of the day
chase all your peace and joy away.
 
Have you ever wondered why people do what we do? –
meeting every week for a rehearsal or two.
From every walk of life, profession and creed,
we unite our voices with a message of peace.
 

We welcome you (we welcome you)

thank you for coming out tonight
Shut out the pressure for a little while – 
everything is gonna be alright
 
How many ways are there to say that we welcome you
and wish you all the best
There are so many ways we can say “You are welcome
as a very special guest!”
We welcome you!
 
 
So long, farewell (so long, farewell)
Sorry to say, it’s time to go
We’ve been together such a little while.
Now we have to think about tomorrow.
 
How many way are there to say that we thank you for your presence here tonight?
We sincerely say that an evening with you has been an absolute delight.
So long, farewell!
 
Arrivederci – Aloha
Salam alaikum – Adieu
au revoir – bon voyage
Shalom – auf wieder sehen
Sayonara – Hasta la vista
Adios – see ya later
Zai jian – Namaste
 
Now, as you leave, heading for home,
take special care while on the go.
We hope to see you down the road.
 
You can see the reason why people do what we do –
meeting every week for a rehearsal or two.
From every walk of life, profession and creed,
we unite out voices with a message of peace.
 
Peace be with you (peace be with you)
think of the roses now and then.
Time in this world can be so wonderful.
Go with peace until we meet again.
 
How many way are there to say that we thank you for your presence here tonight?
We sincerely say that an evening with you has been an absolute delight.
So long, farewell. Peace be with you.
So long, farewell.
