(intro verse not present in Nat "King" Cole version)
All through the year we've waited
Waited through spring and fall
To hear silver bells ringing
See winter time bringing the happiest season of all

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;

Ev'rybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe
Helps 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'ry mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly.

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
For kids from one to ninety-two,
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas to you.

(Instrumental)

And so I'm offering this simple phrase,
For kids from one to ninety-two,
Although it's been said many times, many ways,
Merry Christmas to you,
Merry Christmas to you.
