Lyrics
Santa Claus Is Coming to Town

(Introduction with whistling)
You better watch out;
You better not cry.
Better not pout;
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

He's making a list
And checking it twice.
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.

Oh! You better watch out;
You better not cry.
Better not pout;
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

With little tin horns
And little toy drums,
Rooty toot toots,
And rummy tum tums,
Santa Claus is coming to town.

And curly haired dolls
That cuddle and coo;
Elephants, boats,
And kiddy cars too.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

The kids in Girl and Boy Land
Will have a jubilee;
They're gonna build a Toy Land
All around the Christmas tree.

Oh, you better watch out;
You better not cry.
Better not pout;
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

(Instrumental bridge with whistling)
Santa Claus is coming to town.

(Instrumental bridge with whistling)
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.

Oh, you better watch out;
You better not cry.
Better not pout;
I'm telling you why.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

Santa Claus is coming to town.
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Santa Claus is coming to town.

Hey, there, Santa Claus!
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Whoa! Hey, there, Santa Claus!
Santa Claus is coming to town.
Oh! Hey, there, Santa Claus!
