Santa’s Back In Town

Oh, Kris Kringle, has a beard, dear
And he shows it pearly white
And a toy shop has old St. Nick, babe
And he keeps it, ah, outta sight

Now when that reindeer works with his nose, babe
Christmas presents start to fly
Fancy taste, oh, has Santa Claus, babe
And he always drinks martinis dry

Now down that chimney, uhuh huh,
Whoo Xmas morning, un huh
Comes a fat man with his holiday shtick
Someone’s fillin' up all the stockings
Could that someone be old St. Nick?

There's an old man, huh huh, ahuh
Down at the mall dontcha know
Where he's dressed in red, just hangin' around
Oh, the kids tell him, what they want, doll
Five'll get ya ten old Santa's back in town

So you better watch out and you better not cry
Mmm you better not pout, hey I'll tell you why
'Cause he's makin' a list and he's checkin' it twice
And he's gonna find out who's naughty and nice

Now Frosty Snowman, ho, ho,
Yeah, Rudy Red-Nose
Oh, Miss Suzy Snowflake and old Charlie Brown
Oh, the line forms on the right, kids
Now that Santa's back in town

I said George Bailey, whoa, Jackie Frost, man
Look out for that crazy Grinch and old Charlie Brown
Yes, that line forms at the mall, kids
Now that Santa's back in town –
Look out, old Santa is back!
