Cole, Natalie - The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting On An Open Fire) 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 a turkey and some mistletoe
Helps to make the season bright, yeah
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, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you

  1. Timothy Thomas

    NAT HAS THE PRETTIEST VOICE EVER!!!

  2. Francesca De Caro

    Such a beautiful version of the classic Mel Torme song by Natalie Cole. My mom got to know her well and she will be singing a tribute to her on this song  Tuesday December 11 8pm at Bogie's Westllake Village Ca for the "Christmas and You Concert" with Randy Waldman and Tom Saviano. Donation will be made to American Red Cross Wildfire Victims.

  3. Chris Smith

    I have a hard time containing myself when I hear this version! I think it was way much better than the original by her dad! May they both "RIP"!!! So sad they both left this planet so soon when they did!

    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
    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
    Altho' it's been said many times
    Many ways
    “Merry Christmas to you”
