Did you know the original was a fairly morbid song written during WWII. The lyrics were changed for Judy Garland to make it more cheery.

The lyrics were changed a second time in 1957 because Frank Sinatra still thought they weren't jolly enough.

So the feel of the song changed quite a bit from the original.
