The Christmas Song
"The Christmas Song" (aka Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire) was written in 1944 by Bob Wells and Mel Tormé. The most famous rendition of the song was first recorded by Nat King Cole in 1946. We hope you enjoy our variation on the lyrics.
Antiques resting in an open store;
Old stuff searching is your way,
Country antiques adding more makes you soar,
And rooms dressed up like prior days.
Everybody knows a game board and some country smalls,
Help to make your old home bright.
Folky paint helps increase your hauls,
You’ll find it hard to sleep tonight.
You know antiques are on their way;
You’ve bookmarked lots of goodies on your list today;
And every dealer’s goal is having you spy,
That perfect antique that really makes you fly.
And so we’re offering this stellar site,
To kids from young to ninety-two,
Although it’s been said many times, many ways,
Dig Antiques is for you.
