[Verse 1] 
Chri[D]stmas time is h[B7]ere, by golly, dis[E7]approval wo[A7]uld be folly,
D[D]eck the h[D/C]alls with [G/B]hunks of [Gm/Bb]holly,
F[D]ill the cup, and d[E7]on't say, '[A7]When!'
K[D]ill the turkeys, d[B7]ucks and chickens,
[E7] Mix the punch, ...d[A7]rag out the Dickens,
E[D]ven th[D/C]ough the p[G/B]rospect s[Gm/Bb]ickens, br[D]other, [Em7]here we [A7]go a - g[D]ain!
[Verse 2] 
On Chr[D]istmas [D/C]day you [G/B]can't get sore,
Your f[Gm/Bb]ellow man you [D/A]must adore,
There's t[Bm]ime to[Gm/Bb] rob him [D/A]all the m[E7]ore,
A E7 A7 A9 A7 *
The other three hundred and six - ty - four!
[Verse 3] 
Re - lat[D]ions, sparing [B7]no expense'll s[E7]end some useless o[A7]ld utensil,
[D] Or a m[D/C]atching [G/B]pen and [Gm/Bb]pencil, "J[D]ust the thing I n[E7]eed! How n[A7]ice!"
It do[D]esn't matter [B7]how sincere it [E7]is,
Nor how heart - f[A7]elt the spirit, s[D]enti- [D/C]ment will [G/B]not en -[Gm/Bb] dear it,
Wh[D]at's im - p[Em7]ortant [A7]is the pr[D]ice!
[D] [A7] [D/F#] [D] [D/A] [A7]  
 'Hark the 'Her - ald Tri - bune' sings------,

[D/F#]Adver - t[G]ising [D/A]wond - r[A7]ous th[D]ings!'
'God r[Bm]est ye me[F#]rry m[Bm]erch - [F#m]ants, m[G]ay [D]ye m[G]ake [F#]the y[Bm]ule - [Em]tide p[F#]ay!'
'[D]An - [A7]gels [D]we h[A]ave he[A7]ard on h[D]igh,[D/A] t[D]ell [A7]us t[D]o go [A7]out, and b[D]uy!'
[Verse 4] 
[A7]So----, ...l[D]et the raucous sleigh bells ji[B7]ngle,
H[E7]ail our dear old f[A7]riend, Kris Kringle,
Dr[D]iving his rei[A7]ndeer a - c[B7]ross the [Em]sky----,
D[B7]on't s[Em]tand underneath when t[A9]hey ...[A7]fly ...[D]by----! [A7] [D]
