By the song's 50th anniversary in , Lee's original version had sold over 25 million copies with the 4th most digital downloads sold of any Christmas single. In a interview with The Tennessean , Lee recalled that she didn't know why Marks wanted her to sing it: "I was only 12 [sic], and I had not had a lot of success in records, but for some reason he heard me and wanted me to do it. And I did. An instrumental version of the song appears as background music in the television special Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer , which exclusively featured music written by Marks. It can be heard in the scene where Rudolph first arrives at the Reindeer Games and meets another reindeer named Fireball. The song was also used in the film Home Alone during a scene when Kevin McCallister pretends that there is a holiday party taking place in his house, and discourages the burglars from robbing it.
Brenda Lee Lyrics. Rockin' around the Christmas tree At the Christmas party hop Mistletoe hung where you can see Every 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 Everyone 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 Everyone dancing merrily In the new old fashioned way.

We always went every Sunday, had family prayer and scripture reading, etc. I haven't read every post like you probably havebut I've read a lot of them. I'm the kind of person that believes that it is just tacky in general to break up or end things via text, but that was my only option. Full respect and care.
But, you will probably lose. Typical American girls have the government to make them feel secure. I just wanted to let SN and AD know that, if you decide to choose this path, you are not alone. But I'm trying to determine how much of that behavior is truly down to his profession, and how much of it is him not being very into me or just selfish and unwilling to compromise even if that selfishness is a byproduct of his residency, and not how he would be in other circumstances. Other lazy Mormon girls turn feminist, many thousands of them. I do hope I'm able to make the necessary sacrifices to make my marriage work. I have days when I feel like I don't want to do this anymore, but then I go through old pictures and letters and to remind myself that we had it figured out once, and we can figure it out again.
