Ring out the old

Ring in the new

Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong

Yesterday today was tomorrow
And tomorrow, today will be yesterday
So ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the old
Ring in the new
Ring out the false
Ring in the true
Ring out the old
Ring in the new

Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
Ding dong, ding dong
