Santa Claus Is Coming To Town    (1934)

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

Little tin horns, little toy drums
Rooty-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

All the kids in girl and boy land
Will have a jubilee
They're gonna build a toy land town
Around that Christmas tree

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