Nat King Cole – The Christmas Song lyrics

Nat king cole
Written by mel torme and robert walls

- (#3-1946)

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 ev'rymother'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".
(repeat) (from 9th line)
