Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
Tom Stacks; Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra; many others 1934
  (Eagle 2006)   Joe Goins

OPENER    Basic

Four little ladies gonna chain across, turn those girls and don't get lost
Turn and chain those ladies right back home
Now join your hands and circle to the left, go rollin' 'round
Do an allemande left with your corner girl and weave around that town
He's making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice

Swing your lady round and promenade
Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town


FIGURE (twice for heads, twice for sides)    Mainstream, corner progression

Now the head two couples promenade, it's halfway round you go
Gonna lead to the right with a dosado, it's once around you know
Now swing thru, it's 2 by 2 and the boys run right you do
Bend that line and do the right & left thru
You slide thru then square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing with your corner lady boy, then you all will promeno
Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town


MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    C4

Heads ready, grand parade
He's making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
*The kids in Girl and Boyland will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a Toyland all around the Christmas tree
Well, he's making a list and checking it twice
Gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town


ALTERNATE LYRICS

*He knows when you are sleeping, he know when you're awake
He knows when you've been bad or good, so be good for goodness sake
