Notes: ~ Thirteen-year-old Jimmy Boyd had a # 1 million-seller with this song on
Columbia and other popular versions included Molly Bee for Capitol and Spike Jones,
with vocal by George Rock, for RCA Victor. Perry recorded this Christmas novelty
song during the sessions for "Around The Christmas Tree" in 1953 but it was excluded
from the final release and released only as a flip side to "Rudolph the
Red-Nosed Reindeer" on Bluebird Children's Records.
