The Christmas Song
The King Cole Trio Lyrics


Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide 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
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

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

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

This recording is such a gift!! I can hear Nat King Cole's actual VOICE, not autotune. Thank you for posting this!

clarence willingham

There is no auto tune on any of the recordings, there were 3 recordings all together. The most popular version is the last one recorded in the early 60s. On that version there's reverb added to his vocals, the pitch of the strings are played in a higher key, and his voice is deeper due to age and smoking, but he sounds incredible on all 3.
