About the song: Written by Mel Tormé and Robert Wells on a hot day in July 1944 (in an effort to feel cooler,) this classic American Christmas song has been sung by many famous vocalists, including Bing Crosby and Nat King Cole. Of all the versions sung through the years, our favorite version is Kendra's!

The Christmas Song (Chestnuts) Music Clip

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 gifts will come with day
Because you see it's always been that way
And every mother's child is glad to know
That the greatest gift came 2000 years ago

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
