THE REST OF THE YEAR, written by David Buskin, was recorded by Mary Travers on her album "Morning Glory" (1972) and by D. C. Anderson on his album "All Is Calm, All Is Bright" (2001). I transcribed this from a sample at Allmusic.com:

...In this turmoil a moment of calm
And to behold it come all the faithful, all of the faithful
They gather now to sing "hallelujah" for everyone to hear
But the rest of the year....

Tis the season, once again
red and green in unlikely places
(may connect here)
voices raised in ancient song
praising,
telling
of joy
and sounding odd
beside the current rage...
(see above)

bloody habit is lifted from the earth
and cries of brotherhood
ring out
reaching the hardest of men

So the season once again
Red and green in unlikely places
Dressed up people in the streets
Smiling and wishing well to the world

This is the time of a celebration
A Celebration! and everyone is raising
their voices in this season of good cheer
Oh! but the rest of the year.

Voices raised in ancient song
Bloody habits are lifted from the earth
as cries of brotherhood ring out
reaching the hardest of men

And to behold it, come all the faithful
All of the Faithful!
They gather now to sing "hallelujah" for everyone to hear
Oh, But the rest of the year....




and everyone is raising
their voices in this season of good cheer
Oh! but the rest of the year.

This was a tough one to transcribe, mainly because it seems to have no regular metrical structure, and lots of dangling phrases that are not part of any complete sentence. So I had to guess where to insert line breaks and punctuation.


THE REST OF THE YEAR
Written by David Buskin
As sung by D. C. Anderson on "All Is Calm, All Is Bright" (LML Music, 2005)

So the season once again:
Red and green in unlikely places,
Dressed up people in the streets,
Smiling and wishing well to the world.

This is the time of a celebration,
A celebration, and everyone is bathéd in the glow
Of the season of good cheer.
Oh, but the rest of the year—

Voices raised in ancient songs,
Praising, telling of joy and sounding odd
Beside the current rage.
In this turmoil, a moment of calm,
And to behold it come all the faithful.
All of the faithful, they gather now
To sing "hallelujah" for everyone to hear.
Oh, but the rest of the year—

Silent snowfall hinting peace;
Bloody habit is lifted from the earth,
And cries of brotherhood ring out,
Reaching the hardest of men.
He joins the chorus and loves his neighbor.
He loves his neighbor, and so for one day,
Nobody is killed along some agonized frontier.
Oh, but the rest of the year—
The rest of the year—
The rest of the year—
