"A Holly Jolly Christmas" is a popular song written by Johnny Marks. Although he was Jewish, he specialized in Christmas songs and wrote many standards including "Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer," "I Heard the Bells on Christmas Day," "Rockin' Around the Christmas Tree, and "Run Rudolph Run." This song was first recorded by the Quinto Sisters and later by Burl Ives.

The guitarist is Harold Ray Bradley, the brother of the musical director Owen Bradley.

Have a holly, jolly Christmas;
It's the best time of the year
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

Oh 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
