It's that time, Christmas time is here
A                              D
Everybody knows, there's not a better time of year
D                 Em
Hear that sleigh, Santa's on his way
A                                  D
Hip, hip hooray, for Christmas vacation

This old house, sure is looking good

Got ourselves the finest snowman in the neighborhood
D                  Em
Ain't it fun, always on the run

We can cuddle up and do our Christmas dreaming

Great tab! Thanks! The A on the second line of each chorus actually sounds better if you play it as A9 and then drop back to A (you'll be able to tell exactly when to change). Not sure if that's how it is on the CD, it might be.
