A Holly Jolly

Christmas

Burl Ives

Have a holly jolly Christmas

It’s the best time of the year

Well, I don’t know if there’ll be snow

But have a cup of cheer

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And when you walk down the street

Say hello to friends you know

And everyone you meet

Ho ho, the mistletoe

Hung where you can see

Somebody waits for you

Kiss her once for me

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And in case you didn’t hear

Oh, by golly have a holly jolly Christmas

This year

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And when you walk down the street

Say hello to friends you know

And everyone you meet

Have a holly jolly Christmas

And in case you didn’t hear

Oh, by golly have a holly jolly Christmas

This year

Background

“A Holly Jolly Christmas” was written by Johnny Marks in 1962. It was the title song of the Quinto Sisters’ first album “Holly Jolly Christmas,” recorded in June 1964 by Columbia Records. The song was featured in the 1964 Rankin-Bass Christmas special, “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,” in which Burl Ives voiced the narrator, Sam the Snowman. Originally to be sung by Larry D. Mann as Yukon Cornelius, the song, as well as “Silver and Gold,” was given to Burl Ives due to his singing fame. This version was also included on the soundtrack album for the special and later released as a single. The song was re-recorded by Ives for his 1965 holiday album, “Have a Holly Jolly Christmas.” This version of the song has a somewhat slower arrangement than the “Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer” version and features an acoustic guitar solo introduction. This version has since become the more commonly heard rendition on radio.
