Chestnuts roasting on an open fire 
Jack Frost nipping at your nose 
Yule-tide 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 it's been said 
Many times, many ways 
Merry Christmas to you
