Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on your troubles
Will be out of sight, yeah

Have yourself a merry little Christmas
Make the Yuletide gay
From now on your troubles
Will be miles away, oh ooh

Here we are as in olden days
Happy golden days of yore, ah
Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us, once more, ooh

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
Hang a shining star upon the highest bough, oh
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now, ooh

Faithful friends who are dear to us
Gather near to us, once more, oh

Through the years we all will be together
If the fates allow, oh yeah
But ’til then we’ll have to muddle through
Somehow, oh yeah, oh ooh oh
And have yourself a merry little Christmas now
