A Spaceman Came Travelling - Chris De Burgh

"A Spaceman Came Travelling" is a song by Chris de Burgh released on the album Spanish Train and Other Stories in 1975. It became a popular Christmas song in the UK, and has been released numerous times as a single, first in 1976, then 1981, 1984 and 1986. The 1986 release which was a double A-side with the song "The Ballroom of Romance", reaching #40 on the UK singles chart. A re-release in 1976 reached #1 in Ireland, its reissue making #15 in that country in 1986. It was also released as a single in the Netherlands in 1985. It has appeared on many festive compilation albums.

The reason it's appearing today is because I've just seen de Burgh singing it on the TV and it reminded me what a great song it is.

Scroll and Sing:
A spaceman came travelling on his ship from afar
'Twas light years of time since his mission did start
And over a village he halted his craft
And it hung in the sky like a star
Just like a star

He followed a light and came down to a shed
Where a mother and child were lying there on a bed
A bright light of silver shone round his head
And he had the face of an angel
And they were afraid

Then the stranger spoke
He said "Do not fear
I come from a planet a long way from here
And I bring a message for mankind to hear"
And suddenly the sweetest music filled the air

And it went la la--- (ad lib)
Peace and goodwill to all men
And love for the child

This lovely music went trembling through the ground
And many were wakened on hearing that sound
And travellers on the road
The village they found by the light of that ship in the sky
Which shone all around

And just before dawn
At the paling of the sky
The stranger returned and said "Now I must fly
When two thousand years of your time has gone by
This song will begin once again, to a baby's cry"
And it went la la
This song will begin once again
To a baby's cry
And it goes la la
Peace and goodwill to all men
And love for the child

Oh the whole world is waiting
Waiting to hear the song again
There are thousands standing on the edge of the world
And a star is moving somewhere
The time is nearly here
This song will begin once again
To a baby's cry
