Santa Claus
Is Comin' To Town
~ recorded 1946
 
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 or nice 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
He sees you when you're sleepin'
he knows when you're awake 
he knows if you've been bad or good 
so be good for goodness sake! 
 
So, you better watch out, you better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
Say Perry, 
somebody's ringin' the front doorbell,
shall I answer it? 
Oh tell em to go away Helen 
we've got to decorate this Christmas tree! 
Where do I connect the lights Perry?
Artie, all you have to do is put the thing in a plug!
Say Perry, I can't find a train switch,
know where it is?
Bobby, the train switch is always 
where it's always been! 
Hey Perry, what do ya want for Christmas?
Now wait a minute, where are you going?
Oh I'm going out to give a few haircuts,
you kids go ahead and sing 
I'll be right back! 
 
You better watch out, better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why 
Oh! 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 knows when you're awake 
he knows if you've been bad or good 
so be good for goodness sake! 
 
So, you better watch out, you better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why 
Santa Claus is comin' to town! 
 
Santa Claus is comin' 
to town!
