Cue Sheet

OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK - CLOSER    Mainstream

Sides face grand square
Little tin horns, toy drums too
A rooty toot toot and rummy tum tum
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...

Allemande left and weave the ring
He sees you when you're sleeping, knows when you're awake
Dosado the pretty little girls and promenade for goodness sake
You better be good, better not cry, better not pout
I'll tell you why, Santa Claus is coming to town


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads (sides) square thru 4 hands round in the middle you do
Find the corner lady and dosado
Swing thru go two by two, boys run right you do
Ferris wheel, center two pass thru
Slide thru, square thru 3/4 round you go
Swing that corner lady once and promenade
You better be good, better not cry, better not pout
I'll tell you why, Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town
 
 

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

Lyrics by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie.
Recorded by Tom Stacks; Tommy Dorsey & His Orchestra; many others.
