     The Christmas Song 
           --  Lyrics --
=========================

(Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire)


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.

Ev’rybody knows a 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 ev’ry 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 it’s been said many times,

many ways, 

“Merry Christmas to you.” (Repeat)
