Chestnuts roasting on an open fire

Jack Frost nipping at your nose

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like eskimos


Everybody knows some turkey and some mistletoe

Help to make the season bright

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow

Will find it hard to sleep tonight


They know that Santa's on his way

He's loaded lots of toys

And goodies on his sleigh

And every mother's child is gonna spy

To see if reindeer really know how to fly


And so, I'm offering this simple phrase

To kids from one to ninety-two

Although its been said

Many times, many ways

Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to.. You!
