Christmas Carol Countdown: December 28: Santa Claus is Coming to Town

It was written by J. Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie, and was first sung on Eddie Cantor’s radio show in November 1934. It became an instant hit with orders for 100,000 copies of sheet music the next day and more than 400,000 copies sold by Christmas.

Wow, just Wow. A simple song suddenly became a instant classic.
*Knock Knock*

“Oxymoron police!”

Oh come ON! How many more of these ridiculous police forces are there?

*Knock Knock*

“PoItSPF Police!”

WHAT?

“Prevention of Insults to Silly Police Forces”

Is there a being accused of ridiculous crimes that shouldn’t even be in the lawbook police?

“Nope, get out here and pay these fines!”

You’re run by lawyers aren’t you?

*Knock…

Oh great! what now? the Insulted Lawyer Law association?

“No it’s just the pizza guy.”

Oh… thanks. Okay guys could you wait a sec so I can put up the song lyrics?

“No way! I got to be somewhere in 2 minutes or I’ll lose my boat to a bet. That thing cost me a arm and a leg!”

“Cliché police!”

“Institute of Not Arresting Police police!”

Hmm paradox starts here so I’ll just post the lyrics and run for the border… again.

Oh! 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,
He’s checking it twice,
He’s gonna find out
who’s naughty or nice.

Santa Claus is coming to town!

He sees you when you’re sleeping,
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows when you’ve been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake!

So…You better watch out,
You better not cry
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little tin horns,
Little toy drums.
Rudy-toot-toot
and rummy tum tums.

Santa Claus is coming to town.

Little toy dolls
that cuddle 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.

Oh….You better watch out,
You better not cry.
You better not pout,
I’m telling you why.

Santa Claus is comin’
Santa Claus is comin’
Santa Claus is comin’
To town.
