Someday At Christmas – Stevie Wonder

Stevie Wonder Christmas SongStevie Wonder’s Someday At Christmas was originally released in 1967. The song is an elegant and eloquent hope for a world that is filled with peace, equality and free of poverty, hatred and hunger. This is one of the first Christmas songs with a social and political message.

Released during the Vietnam War, it takes a stand for peace and for equality and compassion. John Lennon sent a similar message in his 1971 song “Happy Xmas (War Is Over).”

This was written by Motown songwriters Ron Miller and Bryan Wells for Wonder’s Christmas album, which contained several Christmas standards mixed with some new songs.

Song Lyrics

Someday at Christmas men won’t be boys
Playing with bombs like kids play with toys
One warm December our hearts will see
A world where men are free

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no wars
When we have learned what Christmas is for
When we have found what life’s really worth
There’ll be peace on earth

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas we’ll see a land
With no hungry children, no empty hands
One happy morning people will share
A world where people care

Someday at Christmas there’ll be no tears
When all men are equal and no man has fears
One shining moment, one prayer away
From our world today

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime

Someday at Christmas man will not fail
Hate would be gone and love will prevail
Someday a new world that we can start
With hope in every heart

Someday all our dreams will come to be
Someday in a world where men are free
Maybe not in time for you and me
But someday at Christmastime
Someday at Christmastime
