OPENER    Basic

All 4 ladies chain across, turn the girl and don't get lost
Rollaway and then you circle left
All 4 ladies rollaway, circle left and go
Left allemande that corner girl
Now weave the ring
Ho Ho
Well, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout I'm telling you why

Swing your girl around and promenade
He's making his list, checking it twice
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town


FIGURE (1)    Mainstream, corner progression

Well the head 2 couples promenade, go 1/2 way round you know
Sides get a right and left thru, turn the girl, let's go
Well, square thru in the middle and go
4 hands around you know
Dosado and do an eight chain 4
The kids in girl and boy land will have a jubilee
Swing that corner once around and promenade around for me
Well, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

Well, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming
