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 a turkey and some
Mistletoe help to make the season bright
And tiny tots with their eyes all a glow
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 (whoa oh)
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you


They know that Santa is on his way (on his way)
He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh (lots of toys and goodies)
And every mother's child is gonna spy to see if
Reindeer really know how to fly (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?Merry Christmas)
Ohh ¡°Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
Merry Christmas (Merry Christmas)
To You
Gotta tell you, baby (oh yeah)
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas, baby
To you
To you
To you
