The song, "Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas" was originally sung in the movie, "Meet Me in St Louis" by Judy Garland. In this scene she is singing to her little sister, and they're both all depressed about moving from St. Louis to New York for their father's work. Here's the original lyrics to the song care of Wikipedia:-Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas-"Have yourself a merry little Christmas It may be your last Next year we may all be living in the past Have yourself a merry little Christmas Pop that champagne cork Next year we may all be living in New York. No good times like the olden days, Happy golden days of yore, Faithful friends who were dear to us Will be near to us no more. But at least we all will be together If the Lord allows. From now on we'll have to muddle through somehow. So have yourself a merry little Christmas now. Judy Garland felt some of the lyrics were too negative for a Christmas song and requested a rewrite but Hugh Martin initially refused and withdrew the song. Martin credits Meet Me in St. Louis actor Tom Drake for persuading him that Garland was right and it was a great song but needed another draft."
