Season's Greetings from Perry Como ~ 1959

Santa Claus
Is Comin' To Town
~ recorded 1959

You better watch out! 
You better not cry!
Here's the man who's gonna tell you why!
 
I just got back from a lovely trip 
along the Milky Way! 
I stopped off at the North Pole 
to spend a holiday! 
 
I called on dear old Santa Claus 
to see what I could see, 
he took me in his workshop 
an' told his plans to me!
 
So! You better watch out, better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
He's makin' a list an' checkin' it twice 
gonna find out who's naughty an' nice 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
He sees you when you're sleepin' ( he sees you! )
he knows when you're awake  ( he knows! )
he knows if you've been bad or good 
so be good for goodness sake! 
 
Ho, you better watch out, you better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
With little tin horns and little toy drums, 
rooty toot toots an' runny tum tums!
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
And curly head dolls that cuddle and coo, 
elephants, boats an' kiddy cars too! 
Santa Claus, Santa Clause, Santa Clause is comin' 
comin' to town! 
 
The kids in girl an' boy land 
will have a jubilee! 
They're gonna build a toyland town 
all around the Christmas tree! 
 
So! You better watch out, better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why; 
the big jolly man in the bright red suit 
with his sleigh all full of loot
Santa Claus is comin' . . . 
to town!
