    Have a Very Merry Christmas!

    Cheerfully

    1. Have a very merry Christmas!

    Scatter gladness ev’rywhere!

    Sing the carols of the Christ child:

    Let your neighbors know you care.

    2. Have a most exciting Christmas!

    Ring a bell and trim a tree;

    Stuff a stocking for a loved one;

    Hang the holly joyously.

    3. Have a happy fam’ly Christmas!

    Gather all your loved ones near;

    Talk about the baby Jesus;

    Wrap your hearts in love this year.
