Christmas music never sounded like this until the blues singers got a hold of “Merry Christmas Baby” starting with Charles Brown in 1947. The legends have been singing it ever since and the Ray Charles version of “Merry Christmas Baby” is one of the best. Kinda of sultry, kinda salty, today’s Prayable pick for best Christmas song makes you tingle rather than jingle. Have fun with it and have a Merry Christmas!

ENJOY MORE Christmas Music!

Merry Christmas Baby Lyrics – Ray Charles

Merry Christmas baby
Babe you sure did treat me nice
Yeah! Merry Merry Merry Christmas baby
Babe you sure did treat me nice
Gave me a diamond ring for Christmas
And now I’m living in paradise

Oh! I’m feeling mighty fine this morning
I’ve got good music on my radio
Hey baby, I’m feeling mighty fine
I’ve got good music on my radio
I would love to hug and kiss you baby
While you’re standing beneath the mistletoe

Santa came down the chimney
About half past three
He got all of these presents that you’ll use
See, I’ll help you put on these

Merry Merry Merry Christmas baby
Oh! You sure been good to me
I haven’t had a drink this evenin’ baby
But I’m all lit up like a Christmas tree

Hey! Merry Merry Merry Christmas baby
I’ve got good music on my radio
I said, Merry Merry Merry Christmas baby
I’ve got good music on my radio
I would love to hug and kiss you baby
While you’re standing beneath the mistletoe

Composers: Lou Baxter and Johnny Moore
