Rockin Around the Christmas Tree – Brenda Lee

Rocking Around The Christmas Tree Brenda Lee

Rockin Around the Christmas Tree is a Christmas song written by Johnny Marks and recorded by Brenda Lee in 1958. Although released it in both 1958 and again in 1959, it did not sell well until Lee became a popular star in 1960; that Christmas season, it hit number 14 on the Billboard pop chart and turned into a perennial holiday favorite.

Despite her mature-sounding voice, she recorded this song when she was only 14 years old.

In a 2006 interview with the Chicago Tribune, Lee explained that she recorded this in July with Nashville producer Owen Bradley. Lee: “Owen had the studio all freezing cold with the air conditioning, and he had a Christmas tree all set up to kind of get in the mood just a little bit. We had a lot of fun.”

Song Lyrics

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
At the Christmas party hop
Mistletoe hung where you can see
Ev’ry couple tries to stop

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Let the Christmas spirit ring
Later, we’ll have some pumpkin pie
And we’ll do some caroling

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, “Let’s be jolly,
Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Ev’ryone dancing merrily
In the new old-fashioned way

You will get a sentimental feeling when you hear
Voices singing, “Let’s be jolly,
Deck the halls with boughs of holly”

Rockin’ around the Christmas tree
Have a happy holiday
Ev’ryone dancing merrily
In the new old-fashioned way
