HANG THEM ON THE TREE (Connie Pearce / Arnold Miller) as recorded by June Christy with orchestra conducted by Pete Rugolo 1961 It's a terrible disgrace, All this trash around the place As the end of the year is drawing near. These are things I can't discard, But it shouldn't be too hard To find a way to use them, Since I can't give away or lose them. I'll take the sorrows of last November, Make them a part of Christmas Day, Colour them shiny bright and gay, And hang them on the tree. I'll take the quarrels of last September, Cold with the words all sad and grey, Cover them with a silver spray And hang them on the tree. Every worry, every fear, I'll tie on a string with every tear, Watch them dance in a Christmas light, A year's worth of troubles, shining bright! I didn't realise last December They could be used up, then away! Paid for then, enjoyed much later, Time is the greatest decorator! Think those mean things, Red and green things, And hang them on the tree! (Transcribed by Peter Akers - August 2017)
