Loretta Hagen - As We Count (New Years Eve)
As We Count (On New Years Eve) (2:55)

words & music by Loretta Hagen

This is the final minute

Before the year runs out

May it take no good with it

And leave behind our peace and health

And as we bide this moment

All of our dreams abound

I wish for doors that open

And raise a glass as we count

10, 9, 8, 7, 6

The time piece ticks

And as we pass each second

Watching the ball come down

I hope that love will beckon

To every heart and spread around.

As we recite the numbers

Shouting among the crowd

I pray the trials that cumber

Fall away as we count

5, 4 with a loud roar

We start to cheer

3, 2, 1

I'm counting on a Happy New Year
