I just got back from a lovely trip along the Milky Way
I stopped off at the North Pole to spend a holiday
I call on dear old Santa Claus to see what I could see
He took me to his workshop and he told his plans to me

So you better watch out, you better not cry
You 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

Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

Now Santa is a busy man, he's got no time to play
He's got millions of stockings to fill on Christmas day
You'd better write your letter now and send it right away
Because he's getting ready with his reindeer and his sledge

With little tin horns and little tin drums
Rudy-toot-toots and rummy-tum-tums
Santa Claus is coming to town

And curly head dolls that tuddle and coo
Elephants, boats and kiddie cars too
Santa Claus is coming to town

The kids in girl and boy land
Will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a toyland town
All around the Christmas tree

So you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

With little tin horns and little toy drums
Rudy-toot-toots and rummy-tum-tums
Santa Claus is coming to town

And curly head dolls that tuddle and coo
Elephants, boats and kiddie cars too
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

Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
