Vince Gill – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town lyrics

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

He's making a list, checking it twice
He's 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!

With little tin horns and little toy drums
Rooty-toot-toots and rum-a-tum-tums
Santa Claus is coming to town

And curly-head dolls that toddle and coo
Elephants, boats, and kiddy cars too
Santa Claus is coming to town

The kids in Girl- and Boyland will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a Toyland town
All around the Christmas tree
