Top 5 Christmas Songs – #1

Here is my #1 favorite Christmas song…

The Christmas Song” (commonly subtitled “Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire” by Nat King Cole.

 

I have at least 15 different artists singing this song on my iTunes library.

The original is song by Mel Tormé, which is as good as Nat King Cole’s version. But there is something about his version of the song that draws me in and makes me get all emotional.

If you want to add more class to the song, you need to hear the version of the song by Nat King Cole & Frank Sinatra.

Here are the lyrics to the song:

The Christmas Song By Nat King Cole

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yule-tide 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 to you

Songwriters: WHITTAKER, ROGER / ADAMS, GREG C. / ROBERTSON, ERIC NATHAN
