  • I just came back from a lovely trip along the Milky Way
    Stopped off at the North Pole to spend a holiday
    I called on dear old Santa Claus
    To see what I could see
    He took me to his workshop
    And told his plans to me, so

    [Chorus]
    You better watch out, you better not cry
    Better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    He's making a list and checking it twice
    Gonna find out who's naughty and nice
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    He sees you when you're sleepin'
    He knows when you're a wake
    He knows if you've been bad or good
    So be good for goodness sake
    Oh! You better watch out, you better not cry
    Better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is comin' to town

    With little tin horns and little toy drums
    Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    And curly head dolls that toddle and coo
    Elephants, boats, and kiddie cars too
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    Then kids in Girl and Boy land will have a jubilee
    They're gonna build a Toyland all around the Christmas tree
    So! You better watch out, you better not cry
    Better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is comin' to town

    Now Santa is a busy man, He has no time to play
    He's got millions of stockings to fill on Christmas day
    You'd better write your letter now
    And mail it right away
    Because he's getting ready
    His reindeer's and his sleigh. So

    [Chorus]

    With little tin horns and little toy drums
    Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    And curly head dolls that toddle and coo
    Elephants, boats, and kiddie cars too
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
    Then kids in Girl and Boy land will have a jubilee
    They're gonna build a Toyland all around the Christmas tree
    So! You better watch out, you better not cry
    Better not pout, I'm telling you why
    Santa Claus is comin' to town
