Magic In Tunes: 12/12/2015 - Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town

First of the Holiday parties this season opened doors for me into newer avenues. Aptly I am kicking it off with the most sung and played during the holidays, Santa Clays Is Comin' To Town. Original song was written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie in 1934. Here's the earliest known recording by Harry Reser and his band with vocals by Tom Stacks and released in 1934.



Lyrics in English:

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
