The Lyrics

I don't expect good marks for humour; it's not funny.

It’s New Year’s Day, and it’s time to think anew.
On New Year’s Day, I have a message to give to you.
Now Christmas time is over, it’s now time to settle down.
Think about what’s in the future this New Year.

It’s time to care, care for the sick and poor.
It’s time to worry now; we don’t know what’s in store.
There’s a threat to all that’s growing,
And it’s getting worse I fear.
Where the bombs are getting nearer,
And the message never clear.
There appears no end to bloodshed;
We can see it for ourselves.
Well I think the time has come for something new.

Don’t you think it’s time for New Year Resolutions.
The first thing we can do is pray for calm.
Let all the shooting cease,
And let us work for peace.
Then perhaps we’ll have a good New Year.

Here’s to peace;
Put all guns and arms away.
Start to talk;
And we’ll hope to see the day
When perhaps we’ll have a good New Year.

Let’s talk peace
For the sake of everyone and
Let’s talk peace
For the sake of everyone and
Then perhaps we’ll have a good New Year.

but seriously you said you didn't expect a good mark for humor so I rated it a 525 still very good and somewhat similar to the original!

This doesn't quite sound like the version I remember, but you may be basing your parody on one of the remakes. Still, good message, and if heeded, we might make it to 2016.
