OPENER - MIDDLE BREAK    Basic

Allemande left go allemande thar, right & left and the 4 men star
Men back up and make a right hand star
Shoot this star go full around, right to corner pull her by
Left allemande, grand ole right & left
Grand ole right & left around, hey when you meet your maid
Dosado that pretty little gal and then you promenade
Oh you better be good, better not cry
Better watch out, I'm tellin' you why
Santa Claus is coming to town


FIGURE    A1, corner progression

Heads to the right, circle up 4, head men break to a line of 4
Without a stop, do a right & left thru
Now pass thru and bend the line, right & left thru and keep in time
Cross trail thru and swing the corner girl
Well the 4 little ladies promenade, inside around the ring
Box the gnat with the feller there and promenade around the square
Oh you better be good, better not cry
Better watch out, I'm tellin' 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.
