Scotty McCreery - The Christmas Song Lyrics

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
Jack Frost nipping on 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 going to 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 its been said many times, many ways,
A very Merry Christmas to you

  33. Cheryl Nicholed

    The best Christmas present would be to see my dad and sister for Christmas again I miss u guys have a good Christmas in Heaven

  34. Margaret Jefferson

    I dedicate this song to the best Christmas present I want this year is my grandpa. I miss him a lot it's hard without him but If I could go to heaven and have Christmas with him I believe it would be a lot easier to have Christmas an not be all stressed out

  35. Maize Charley

    I don't understand why people always claim a love one went to heaven, Especially Christian. The scriptures say there will be a calling for 144,000 to go to heaven first. There will be a time for calling of resurrection before judgement. No one is going to heaven except the 144,000. Earth will be turned into paradise by all God's angels. Christmas in Heaven! Ridiculous! Why would God allow room for a Pagan Holiday. Wake up people!! Understand your scriptures.

  36. Heather Holbrook

    First Christmas without my grandpa , lost him in August, think of him everyday

  37. dreamaussie

    42 Christmases my darling brother has spent in heaven, I was only ten when he died, he was 22. As a little girl I remember him as an loving, caring, kind big brother and I feel incredible sadness that I did not get the opportunity to know him as an adult. I gifted my brother's name to my son as a second name, somehow it shortened the distance between Heaven and Earth for me. Heavenly Christmas Glenn, I will love you for eternity xx

  38. Ben Smith

    This will be first Christmas without my daddy he passed away due to cancer

    Carol Allerding

    Nikki Walters

    I'll never forget the day my Dad passed away, I walked in the nursing home room as they were doing CPR. They made me leave the room with my mom. A paramedic came out to the waiting room explaining they were gonna do the best they can 20 minutes later they said my dad passed away. After a long month of him having a stroke. :( Its so hard losing a parent. I'm sorry you all lost your father, God bless you all. Merry Christmas to you all and to our fathers up in heaven
