[Starts Singing] Jolly Old St. Nicholas Lead your ear this way Don't you tell a single soul, what I'm going to say Christmas Eve is coming soon Now you dear old man Whispher what you'll bring to me, Tell me if you can. [Ends Singing] That was Jolly Old St. Nicholas. It's a very easy ... but sentimental song. Always makes me think of tin trains for some reason. It consists of just three chords, and I know your gonna learn them and love'em. The chords are, A, E and D. On the piano they look like this. We have A. E. And D. And that's basically it. You add the melody in your right hand. And once you get the hang of those three chords, feel free to start arpeggiating or breaking up that chord. There's rhythm written on the page, but by no means do you need to feel ... restricted by those melodies. [Starts Singing] Christmas Eve is coming soon Now you dear old man Whispher what you'll bring to me, Tell me if you can. [Ends Singing]"
