The Christmas Song
Toots and The Maytals Lyrics


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 some holly and some mistletoe
Well, they 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 in 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 one hundred-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas, yeah, Merry Christmas to you

Have this on a single I picked up in the Caymans in 1972 or so.... Saw Toots at the Hard Rock in Las Vegas about 5 years ago, still can sing.
