Lyrics

[Spoken Intro]
It’s all cold down on the beach
The wind’s whipping down the boardwalk
Hey Band! You guys know what time of year it is?
What time, what? What?
Christmastime!
What? Oh, Christmastime!
You guys, all, you guys all been good and practicing real hard?
Yeah?
Clarence, you been, you been rehearsing real hard now? So Santa’ll bring you a new saxophone?
Everyone out there been good or what?
Aw, that’s not many, not many you guys are in trouble out here

[Chorus, sung]
You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why –
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list, he’s checking it twice
He’s gonna find out whose naughty or nice
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

[Verse]
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
You’d better be good for goodness sake!
You’d better be good for goodness sake!

[Chorus]
Oh you’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why –
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

Ho, ho, ho, ho!

[Saxophone solo]

[Verse]
He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
You’d better be good for goodness sake!
You’d better be good for goodness sake!

[Chorus]
You’d better watch out, you’d better not cry
You’d better not pout, I’m telling you why –
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town
Santa Claus is coming to town

Santa Claus is coming to town!
Santa Claus is coming to town!
Santa Claus is coming to town!
Santa Claus is coming to town!
