Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
At the Christmas party hop.
Mistletoe hung where you can see,
Every couple tries to stop.
Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
Let the Christmas spirit ring.
Later we'll have some pumpkin pie,
And we'll do some caroling.

You will get a sentimental
Feeling when you hear,
Voices singing "Let's be jolly
Deck the halls with boughs of holly",

Rockin' around the Christmas tree,
Have a happy holiday.
Everyone dancing merrily,
In the new old fashioned way.
