Rockin' Around The Christmas Tree
Brenda Lee Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Rockin' around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Every couple tries to stop
Rockin' around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie
And we'll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let's be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin' around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Everyone dancin' merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

Oh, you will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, let's be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Rockin' around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday




Everyone dancin' merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

65 years later, we finally get the music video 😂. For those who are wondering, Brenda is 78, going onto 79. Which means she was 13-14 years old when recording this song.

She’s number one on Billboard “Hot 100!”

@HartHendrix

So she was around 14-15 when she sang this song?? That makes it even more impressive

@Madisontriquet18
