About Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas
“Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” was introduced by Judy Garland in the 1944 movie Meet Me In St. Louis. In a Twitter conversation in November 2012, Tony Bennett said that “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas” is his favorite Christmas song.

Lyrics

Christmas future is far away
Christmas past is past
Christmas present is here today
Bringing joy that will last

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Let your heart be light
From now on our troubles will be out of sight

Have yourself a Merry Little Christmas
Make the yuletide gay
From now on our troubles will be far away

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

In the years we all will be together
If the fates allow
And the shining star will climb the highest bar
And have yourself a Merry Little Christmas now
