Gregory Porter - The Christmas Song 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
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
Merry Christmas
Merry Christmas to you

Gregory Porter The Christmas Song Comments
  1. Beverley Roberts

    I love Gregory Porter, I first heard him singing on radio 2, and after that I saw him live at the Royal Albert Hall. He blew my husband and I away with his amazingly warm, soulful, gorgeous voice, especially when he sang without a microphone and his voice filled the while of the Albert Hall. Wish there was a Christmas Album by Gregory as I would be playing this all over Christmas! 🎉🎊🎄 x 😄

  2. hueman

    A beautiful voice💜 from Vietnam.

  3. MYR Villalobos

    So delightful

  4. Sleepy Rivera

  5. Julian Walker

    That voice. That string arrangement. The muted trumpet part. His ear is sick that he can sing over that so flawlessly. Wow.

    Thank you for all your doing for music. On a personal note for me... doing for black music. Please only change for the better and with wisdom...Such a spiritually empowered voice. It's not hard to sense who is empowering it and ordained your position. God bless. Buying everything you sell musically...yes... buying is still good.

  89. Leslie Weddell

    Spoiled by a bloody advert that cannot be removed at beginning!!!!!

  90. xander

    I've often wondered when you would do a version of this amazing christmas tune. I know you are a huge fan of NKC, but please don't let them turn you into a black version of Michael Bublé. Don't forget the funky jazz :)

  91. hal warner

    What a treasure. Gregory Porter.

  92. African Child

    In South Africa we say "o bina ha monate" - meaning beautiful rendition.
