Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Basic

*Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,
*Jack Frost nipping at your nose.

Left allemande, home you go dosido,
the men star left one time you go.
Turn your partner by the right hand 'round,
left allemande and promenade.
**Although it's been said many times, many ways.
Merry Christmas to you.


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads square thru four hands and go.
'Round that corner with a dosido
Swing thru down the line, the boys run right.
You tag the line, all face right.
Do a wheel and deal, the turn thru.
Left allemande and promenade.
Although it's been said many times, many ways.
Merry Christmas to you.


ADDITIONAL LYRICS

*You know some turkey and some mistletoe,
*Help to make season bright


*So I'm sending you this simple phrase,
*It hits from one to ninety two


**Hug 'em up tight, gonna whisper tonight.

The Christmas Song Lyrics ID: 639

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed 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 Santa's on his way
He's bringing lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple wish
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas to you

They know that Santa's on his way
He's bringing lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so I'm offering this simple wish
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although it's been said many times, many ways
Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas, Merry Christmas to you

Lyrics by Mel Tormé and Bob Wells.
Recorded by The Nat King Cole Trio.
