Have Yourself
a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
let your heart be light
from now on our troubles will be out of sight
Merry Christmas, Merry Merry Christmas!

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
make the yuletide gay
from now on our troubles will be miles away!
All your troubles soon turn into bubbles!

Once again, as in olden days
happy golden days of yore
faithful friends who are dear to us gather near to us once more!
( Once more! )

Through the years we all will be together 
if the fates allow;
Hang a shining star
upon the highest bough 
and have yourself
a merry little Christmas now!

faithful friends who are dear to us 
will be near to us once more! ( Once more! )
 
Through the years we all will be together 
if the fates allow;
Hang a shining star
upon the highest bough 
and have yourself
a merry little Christmas now!
 
. . . have yourself a merry, merry, merry 
merry little Christmas now!
