The Christmas Song

Lyrics ,Music:Mel Tormé ,Bob Wells

The song was publishe 1944.

"The Christmas Song"
(commonly subtitled "Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire" or,
as it was originally subtitled, "Merry Christmas to You")
is a classic Christmas song written in 1944 by musician, composer,
and vocalist Mel Tormé and Bob Wells.
According to Tormé, the song was written during a blistering hot summer.
In an effort to "stay cool by thinking cool",
the most-performed (according to BMI) Christmas song was born.

"I saw a spiral pad on his piano with four lines written in pencil",
Tormé recalled.
"They started, "Chestnuts roasting..., Jack Frost nipping...,
Yuletide carols..., Folks dressed up like Eskimos.'
Bob (Wells, co-writer) didn't think he was writing a song lyric.
He said he thought if he could immerse himself in winter he could cool off.
Forty minutes later that song was written.
"I wrote all the music and some of the lyrics."

The Nat King Cole Trio first recorded the song early in 1946.
At Cole's behest– and over the objections of his label,
Capitol Records– a second recording was made the same year
utilizing a small string section, this version becoming a massive
hit on both the pop and R&B charts.
Cole again recorded the song in 1953,
using the same arrangement with a full orchestra arranged
and conducted by Nelson Riddle, and once more in 1961,
in a stereophonic version with orchestra conducted by Ralph Carmichael.
Nat King Cole's 1961 version is generally regarded as definitive,
and in 2004 was the most loved seasonal song with women aged 30–49,
while Cole's original 1946 recording was inducted into
the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1974.



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 going to be spy
To see 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!
