Happy New Year’s Eve From T2C: First Up Tom Wopat Sings On The Last Night of the Year

Happy New Year’s Eve From T2C: First Up Tom Wopat Sings On The Last Night of the Year

Last night I went to see Tom Wopat at The Beach Cafe and what a night. More on this tomorrow. Then he sang this amazing song by the group Chicago and I knew I had to share this. Between the lyrics and the glorious arrangement by Ted Firth, I fell in love with this song and give it to you.

Happy New Year!

On The Last Night Of The Year”

(On the last night of the year)

The crowd of strangers storm the Square
The countdown and the cheers
They’ll freeze their a$$es off out there
But me I’ll stay right here
They’ll lift a glass to all that’s passed
And all that’s supposed to be
I’ll toss the Christmas cards and burn
The dried up Christmas tree
On the last night of the year
On the last night of the year

I’ll stir the coals and fan the flame
At Christmas time each year
They’ll lift a wish and dim the rain
Hope no one can hear
I’ll shake my head and climb in bed
Before the ball comes down
That fine champagne right down the drain
Auld the quaint will just be drowned
On the last night of the year
On the last night of the year

I’ll make some resolutions now
Like shiny souvenirs
They’ll wind up crumpled on the ground
With confetti and the beer
Beneath the quilt I pray my guilt
Will melt into the night
My weary eyes will search for signs
That I can make it right
On the last night of the year
On the last night of the year

Thank-you Dave from The Beach Cafe!
