[Verse 1]
    D              B7                E7         A       A7
Christmas time is here, by golly, disapproval would be folly,
D            D/C       G/B      Gm/Bb
   Deck the halls with hunks of holly,
 D                 E7         A7
Fill the cup, and don't say, 'When!'
 D                 B7
Kill the turkeys, ducks and chickens,
E7                     A             A7
    Mix the punch, ...drag out the Dickens,
D        D/C        G/B     Gm/Bb      D      Em7     A7      D
   Even though the prospect sickens, brother, here we go a - gain!

[Verse 2]
      D      D/C     G/B                  Gm/Bb          D/A
On Christmas day you can't get sore, your fellow man you must adore,
         Bm    Gm/Bb    D/A      E7
There's time to rob him all the more,
      A           E7         A7   A9    A7 *   A5
The other three hundred and six - ty - four!

[Verse 3]
        D             B7             E7                A7  
Re - lations, sparing no expense'll send some useless old utensil,
D        D/C     G/B     Gm/Bb     D                E7        A7
   Or a matching pen and pencil, "Just the thing I need! How nice!"
     D            B7             E7
It doesn't matter how sincere it is,
                 A        A7      D     D/C       G/B     Gm/Bb
Nor how heart - felt the spirit, senti- ment will not en - dear it,
  D          Em7    A7         D
What's im - portant is ...the price!

  D              A7  D/F#   D     D/A   A7
'Hark the 'Her - ald Tri - bune' sings------,
D/F#     G      D/A     A7    D
Adver - tising wonder - ous things!'

      Bm                                     G   F#  Bm  Em      F#
'God rest ye mer -ry  merch -ants, may ye  make the Yule-tide   pay!'

 D    A7   D   A     A7      D   D/A    D   A7  D    A7        D
'An - gels we have heard on high,      tell us to go out, and buy!'

[Verse 4]
A7          D                             B7
So----, ...let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
 E7                  A           A7
Hail our dear old friend, Kris Kringle,
  D            A7         B7       Em
Driving his reindeer a - cross the sky----,
 B7    Em                    A9     A7     D        A7 D
Don't stand underneath when they ...fly ...by----!
