The Christmas Song Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire

Chris Rice

 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
Heís loaded lots of toys and goodies
On his sleigh
And every motherís child is gonna spy
To see if Reindeer really know how to fly     

And so Iím offering this simple phrase 
To kids from one to ninety-two   
Although its been said many times, many ways
 Merry Christmas to you
