Perry Como - "The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire ) (1959 Version" lyrics

Chestnuts roastin' on an open fire

Jack Frost nippin' at your nose

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir

And folks dressed up like Eskimos

Everybody knows

A turkey and some mistletoe

will help to make the season bright

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

an' 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!

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!

Music by Mel Torm

with lyrics by Robert Wells, 1946
