Chestnuts roasting on an open hearth
Jack Frost nipping at your nostril
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

Help to make the season brilliant
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will discover it laborious to sleep tonight
They know that Santa's on his manner
He's loaded a number of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And each mom's youngster is gonna spy
To see if reindeer actually know tips on how to fly

And so I'm providing this straightforward phrase
To youngsters from one to ninety-two
Although it's been mentioned many occasions, some ways
Merry Christmas to you

And so I'm providing this straightforward phrase
To youngsters from one to ninety-two
Although it's been mentioned many occasions, some ways
Merry Christmas to you
