    Songwriter of 'Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas' dies

    So let the raucous sleigh bells jingle,
    Hail our dear old friend kris kringle,
    Driving his reindeer across the sky.
    Don't stand underneath when they fly by.

    Thanks for sharing.. Had no idea, he died almost 2 months ago..
    What a great Songwriter... He was a great duet with Ralph Blane, where the last had written the music for Have Yourself A Merry little Christmas..

    Just read in Wikipedia, that the lyrics for "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas" were originally different. The lyricist, Hugh Martin, wrote lyrics which referred to the soldiers fighting during World War Two. Judy Garland thought the song as written was too mean to sing to Margaret O'Brien, so he changed the lyrics.
