"The Christmas Song" as written by Matthew Gerrard, John Sullivan Dwight and Adolphe Charles Adam....
One is a spirit of Christmas
It is the celebration of the birth of the Christ child!
This we will never forget!
Oh, this we will never forget!
But there are other little things too!
Yes, there are other little things too!

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.
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! Merry Christmas to you!
To you!
Merry Christmas everybody and a Happy New Year!
To you!
