Merry Christmas My Friends
Merry Christmas my friends
What shall I wish you for Christmas,
this season of joy and delight?
The sound of carol songsters
on a starlit Christmas night?
What can I wish you for Christmas?
What is the thing you desire?
Is it health, wealth, or happiness,
or the warmth of a Christmas fire?
What can I wish you for Christmas,
to give all the joy I am able?
A merry time with good, true friends
around the fare of a Christmas table?
So much I have wished you for Christmas,
yet only my greeting I send.
For all that I have to offer...
is the sincere heart of a friend.
