Santa Claus is Coming to Town
You better watch out

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He's making a list

And checking it twice;

Gonna find out Who's naughty and nice

Santa Claus is coming to town

 

He sees you when you're sleeping

He knows when you're awake

He knows if you've been bad or good

So be good for goodness sake!

 

O! You better watch out!

You better not cry

Better not pout

I'm telling you why

Santa Claus is coming to town

                          

Little tin horns, little toy drums.

Rudy-toot-toot and rummy tum tums.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

 

Little toy dolls that cuddle and coo,

Elephants, boats and Kiddie cars too.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

                                          

The kids in Girl and boy land

will have a jubialee.

They're gonna build a toyland town

all around the Christmas tree.

 

Ohh….You better watch out, you better not cry.

You better not pout, I'm telling you why.

Santa claus is coming to town. 

 

 

Frosty the Snowman

Frosty the Snowman

Was a jolly happy soul

With a corncob pipe and a button nose

And two eyes made out of coal

 

Frosty the Snowman

Is a fairytale they say

He was made of snow

But the children know

How he came to life one day

 

There must have been some magic

In that old silk hat they found

For when they placed it on his head

He began to dance around

 

Frosty the Snowman

Was alive as he could be

And the children say

He could laugh and play

Just the same as you and me

 

Frosty the Snowman

Knew the sun was hot that day

So he said let's run

And we'll have some fun

Now before I melt away

 

Down to the village

With a broomstick in his hand

Running here and there all around the square

Saying catch me if you can

 

He led them down the streets of town

Right to the traffic cop

And he only paused a moment when

He heard him holler stop

 

Frosty the Snowman

Had to hurry on his way

But he waved goodbye

Saying don't you cry

I'll be back again some day

 

Thumpety thump thump

Thumpety thump thump

Look at Frosty go

 

Thumpety thump thump

Thumpety thump thump

Over the hills of snow

 

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

Underneath the mistletoe last night.

She didn't see me creep

Down the stairs to have a peep;

She thought that I was tucked up in my bedroom fast asleep.

Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus

Underneath his beard so snowy white;

Oh, what a laugh it would have been

If Daddy had only seen

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

(Repeat)

 

Sleigh Ride

Just hear those sleigh bells jingle-ing

Ring ting tingle-ing too

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

 

Outside the snow is falling

And friends are calling “You Hoo”

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

 

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap

let's go

Let's look at the snow

We're riding in a wonderland of snow

 

Giddy-yap giddy-yap giddy-yap it's grand

Just holding your hand

We're gliding along with the song

Of a wintry fairy land

 

Our cheeks are nice and rosy

And comfy cozy are we

We're snuggled up together like two

Birds of a feather would be

 

Let's take the road before us

And sing a chorus or two

Come on, it's lovely weather

For a sleigh ride together with you

 

There's a birthday party at the home of Farmer Gray

It'll be the perfect ending of a perfect day

We'll be singing the songs we love to sing without a single stop

At the fireplace while we watch the chestnuts pop

Pop! Pop! Pop!

 

There's a happy feeling nothing in the world can buy

When they pass around the coffee and the pumpkin pie

It'll nearly be like a picture print by Currier and Ives

These wonderful things are the things

We remember all through our lives

(Repeat)

 

Must Be Santa!

Who's got a beard that's long and white?
Santa's got a beard that's long and white.
Who comes around on a special night?
Santa comes around on a special night.

Special night, beard that's white…
Must be Santa, must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus.

 

Who wears boots and a suit of red?
Santa wears boots and a suit of red.
Who wears a long cap on his head?
Santa wears a long cap on his head.

Cap on head, suit that's red,
Special night, beard that's white…
Must be Santa, must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus.

 

Who's got a big red cherry nose?
Santa's got a big red cherry nose.
Who laughs this way, “Ho, ho, ho!”?
Santa laughs this way, “Ho, ho, ho!”.

Ho, ho, ho, cherry nose,
Cap on head, suit that's red,
Special night, beard that's white…
Must be Santa, must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus.

 

Who very soon will come our way?
Santa very soon will come our way.
Eight little reindeer pull his sleigh.
Santa's little reindeer pull his sleigh.

Reindeer sleigh, come our way,
Ho, ho, ho, cherry nose,
Cap on head, suit that's red,
Special night, beard that's white…
Must be Santa, must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus.

 

Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen,
Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixen.
Dasher, Dancer, Prancer, Vixen,
Comet, Cupid, Donner, Blixen.
Reindeer sleigh, come our way,
Ho, ho, ho, cherry nose,
Cap on head, suit that's red,
Special night, beard that's white…
Must be Santa, must be Santa,
Must be Santa, Santa Claus.

Chestnuts Roasting

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire
Jack Frost nipping at your nose
Yuletide carols being sung by a choir
And folks dressed up like eskimos

Everybody knows some turkey and some mistletoe
Help to make the season bright
Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow
Will find it hard to sleep tonight

They know that Santa's on his way
He's loaded lots of toys
And goodies on his sleigh
And every mother's child is gonna spy
To see if reindeer really know how to fly

And so, I'm offering this simple phrase
To kids from one to ninety-two
Although its been said
Many times, many ways
Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas! Merry Christmas to. You!

(Repeat)

 

Rudolf the Red-nosed Reindeer

Rudolf, the red-nosed reindeer
had a very shiny nose.
And if you ever saw him,
you would even say it glows.

All of the other reindeer
used to laugh and call him names.
They never let poor Rudolf
play in any reindeer games.

Then one foggy Christmas eve
Santa came to say:
“Rudolf with your nose so bright,
won't you guide my sleigh tonight?”

Then all the reindeer loved him
as they shouted out with glee:
“Rudolf the red-nosed reindeer,
you'll go down in history!”

(Repeat)

Winter Wonderland

Sleigh bells ring, are you listening,
in the lane, snow is glistening
A beautiful sight,
we're happy tonight,
walking in a winter wonderland.

Gone away is the bluebird,
here to stay is a new bird
He sings a love song,
as we go along,
walking in a winter wonderland.

In the meadow we can build a snowman,
Then pretend that he is Parson Brown
He'll say: Are you married?
we'll say: No man,
But you can do the job
when you're in town.

Later on, we'll conspire,
as we dream by the fire
To face unafraid,
the plans that we've made,
walking in a winter wonderland.

(Repeat)

 

Let It Snow!
Oh, the weather outside is frightful,
But the fire is so delightful,
And since we've no place to go,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

It doesn't show signs of stopping,
And I brought some corn for popping;
The lights are turned way down low,
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

When we finally say good night,
How I'll hate going out in the storm;
But if you really hold me tight,
All the way home I'll be warm.

The fire is slowly dying,
And, my dear, we're still good-bye-ing,
But as long as you love me so.
Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow.

(Repeat)

 

Silver Bells
City
sidewalks, busy sidewalks
Dressed in holiday style
In the air
There's a feeling
of Christmas
Children laughing
People passing
Meeting smile after smile
And on ev'ry street corner you'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

Strings of street lights
Even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green
As the shoppers rush
home with their treasures

Hear the snow crunch
See the kids bunch
This is Santa's big scene
And above all this bustle
You'll hear

Silver bells, silver bells
It's Christmas time in the city
Ring-a-ling, hear them sing
Soon it will be Christmas day

(Repeat) 

 

Jingle Bells

Dashing through the snow, in a one-horse open sleigh
Over the fields we go, laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-tail ring, making spirits bright
What fun it is to ride and sing a sleighing song tonight

Chorus
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh
Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride in a one-horse open sleigh

A day or two ago, I thought I'd take a ride
And soon Miss Fanny Bright, was seated by my side;
The horse was lean and lank, misfortune seemed his lot;
He got into a drifted bank and then we got upsot
(Chorus) (Repeat 2x)

 

 

White Christmas
I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
Just like the ones I used to know
Where the treetops glisten
and children listen
To hear sleigh bells in the snow

I'm dreaming of a white Christmas
With every Christmas card I write
May your days be merry and bright
And may all your Christmases be white.

(Repeat)
