Kathleen Battle - Medley: The Christmas Song and Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas



The Christmas Song

[Verse 1]
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

[Bridge]
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

[Verse 2]
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”

Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
[Verse 1]
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
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be miles away

[Bridge]
Here we are as in olden times
Happy golden times of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us once more

[Verse 2]
From now on, 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

[Outro]
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you
