Ella Fitzgerald - Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas Lyrics



Have yourself a merry little Christmas, let your heart be light
Next year all our troubles will be out of sight
Have yourself a merry little Christmas, make the yule-tide gay
Next year all our troubles will be miles away

Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more

Someday soon, we all will be together, if the fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

Once again as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Will be near to us once more

Someday soon, we all will be together, if the fates allow
Until then, we'll have to muddle through somehow
So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

  33. Massimo Bertola

    After having heard the original by Judy Garland, in the proper contest, and having been touched by the intensity and melancholy of the 'true' song in 'Meet me in St. Louis', sorry but this sounds like a dept. store elevator's music...

  34. Barbara Elovic

    The voice of perfection. She works so hard to make her singing sound effortless.

  35. doni brune

  55. Rav66 C

    We're getting closer. Getting myself primed even though it's 60 degrees in New York. Classic rendition. If you get a chance try listening to Lauren Daigle "Behold a Christmas Collection". She's an up and coming Gospel singer with a very deep sultry voice. Enjoy the holidays!

  72. 90sKhidd

    What are the lyrics to this version? We say "hang a shining star upon the highest bough", but that's not what Ella Fitzgerald is saying.

    HyperGeo


    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Let your heart be light
    Next year all our troubles will be out of sight

    Have yourself a merry little Christmas
    Make the yuletide gay
    Next year all our troubles will be miles away


    Once again as in olden days 
    Happy golden days of yore
    Faithful friends who are dear to us
    Will be near to us once more

    Someday soon we all will be together
    If the fates allow
    Until then we'll have to muddle through somehow
    So have yourself a merry little Christmas now

    Jimgod69

    +90sKhidd You sing that cause Sinatra ruined the song with that line, he didn't like the muddle through part so he went with a fancy, feel good highest star thing. I like the muddling though, it does describe how we live our lives. We muddle through. That's the original line and that is a major reason I'll take Ella over Sinatra with this song any day of the week!!

  73. Gratia Cynthia Porto

    Ella is the best! The rest is the rest! And I love her...

    Gather near to us once more

    Through the years
    We all will be together
    If the Fates allow (allow)
    Hang a shining star
    Upon the highest bough
    And have yourself
    A merry little Christmas right now

    (Have yourself a)
    Have yourself a
    (Merry little Christmas)
    A merry little Christmas

    This arrangement and Ella's voice are EVERYTHING! Love the swing rhythm soooo much. The opening bars are the definition of cool. Happy Holidays and thanks for posting.

    If there's ANYTHING as beautiful as this being recorded this side of the Millennium,
    I'd really like to know what it might be.

    Why can't we have that quality of a voice in today's music?  Vaughn, Day, Fitzgerald, Washington, Stafford, Bailey, Lee and I could go on.  Where are these voices hiding now?

    Angela Garden

    It is NOT "Our" holiday! It is everyones holiday. It was a holiday LONG before a baby was born. Anyone can enjoy it, you do not have the ownership of it. Ella is boundless...her love of music transcends all boundaries.

    Angela Garden

    So glad that you love Ella too! She transcends all boundaries! Have a great holiday, no matter how you celebrate!

    Peter Meyvaert

    exactly, I wonder what kind of person feels good about giving thumbs down to someone's music, even worse if that someone has passed away a long time ago, leaving a historical legacy. Have no idea what could ever motivate a person to do that :-/

    what the hell were they thinking?
