Lyrics

(Ding-dong-ding)
(Ding-dong-ding)

(Ding-dong-ding) Have a holly jolly Christmas
(Ding-dong-ding) It's the best time of the year
I don't know if there'll be snow
But have a cup of cheer

(Ding-dong-ding) Have a holly jolly Christmas
(Ding-dong-ding) And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Oh ho, the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

(Ding-dong-ding) Have a holly jolly Christmas
(Ding-dong-ding) And in case you didn't hear
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas this year

Have a holly jolly Christmas
It's the best time of the year

Have a holly jolly Christmas
And when you walk down the street
Say hello to friends you know
And everyone you meet

Oh ho, the mistletoe
Hung where you can see
Somebody waits for you
Kiss her once for me

(Ding-dong-ding) Have a holly jolly Christmas
(Ding-dong-ding) And in case you didn't here
Oh, by golly, have a holly jolly Christmas this year

(Ding-dong-ding-dong)
(Ding-dong-ding-dong)
(Ding-dong-ding)
