Christmas Songs – Willy Claus lyrics

Santa Claus once caught a cold
The night of Christmas Eve
Though he felt he had to go
He felt to sick to leave.
Suddenly he heard the bells
Ajingling on his sleigh,
He looked out, just in time
To see his outfit pull away

Willy Claus, Willy Claus, Little son of Santa Claus, hitched the reindeer to the sleigh,
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, filling in for Santa Claus,
Cracked the whip and drove away,
"Giddy-up, Giddy-up", Willy hollered "Giddy-up"
Driving southward in the night,
Ting-l-ling, ting-l-ling, with the bells a jing-l-ling,
Willy soon was out of sight.

Mama Claus came rushing in and breathlessly she said,
"I just looked in Willy's room and Willy's not in bed".
"Dear oh dear!" cried Santa Claus, "I think he's run away.
He had on his new green suit, and drove off in my sleigh".

Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Filling in for Santa Claus,
Had a job to do that night.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Went down chimneys, left and right.
Bicycles, choo-choo trains, little dolls and aerolplanes,
He left toys for everyone. Water guns, cowboy hats, puppy dogs, and pussy cats,
Just like Santa would have done.

Christmas morn the sleigh flew home
Across the snow white plains.
Mom and Santa saw at once that no one held the reins.
Out they ran to search the sleigh and when they
Looked in back,
Guess who they found sound asleep
Upon the empty sack...

Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Two more gifts were were all he had,
In his arms, in his arms, they were nestled in his arms,
One said "Mom" and one said "Dad".
Santa Claus, Mama Claus, smiled on little Willy Claus,
Then as they picked up their son,
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Whispered "God bless everyone".
