(dwight yoakam)

Cold tears fall from his eyes
As he turns into the night and walks away
Lucille runs outside
Just to see if there might be a sleigh
Little bobby stares down
At the plate where cookies still lay
And tries to understand
Why momma said santa can't stay

Chorus:
Momma said santa can't stay
Said she told him that twice yesterday
Then a car just like dad's
Pulled out and drove away
After momma said santa couldn't stay

They both heard him coming
Saw mom run down the hall and holler wait
Doug you're drunk don't come inside
I'm not joking I've had all this I can take
He threw a present really hard
That almost hit mom's new boyfriend ray
And yelled ho-ho lucky for you she's here
And said that santa can't stay

Chorus:
Momma said santa can't stay
Said she told him that twice yesterday
Then a car just like dad's
Pulled out and drove away
After momma said santa couldn't stay
