"Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" as written by Hugh Martin and Ralph Blane....
Have yourself a merry little Christmas,
Let your heart be light
From now on,
our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas night.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Through the years
We all will be together,
If the Fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough.
And have yourself A merry little Christmas now.

Here we are as in olden days,
Happy golden days of yore.
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more.

Have yourself a merry little Christmas.
Make the yuletide gay.
From now on, all troubles will be miles away
So, have yourself a merry little Christmas day.

    General Commenti really need to point out that conor didn't write this song. i can't remember who wrote it, but it was before he was born.
    it was first heard in the movie "Meet Me in St. Louis," sung by Judy Garland, her version is the most well known, and just about everyone has done a remake.
    With that said, i think the song means have a merrry christmas, don't worry about what's happening before and after, just let your heart be light.
    also, in the movie, it is sung to a little girl on christmas eve right before the whole family is moving to new york, which the family isn't really happy about.

    General CommentThe fuck? There are seriously people who think Conor Oberst wrote this song?

    It's one of the most popular Christmas songs ever, seriously.

    General CommentIt's a little lonely, but at the same time very warm and sweet.
    Is he trying to tell us you've to make it a merry little Christmas for youself, (even) when no one else is going to make it a day of happiness?
    Or is he telling that Christmas makes all troubles far away and warm our hearts, even in times that aren't warm at all?
