      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 a glow
      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
      To kids from one to ninety-two
      Although it’s been said many times, many ways
      “Merry Yuletide to you!”
