Santa Claus Is Coming To My House

I watched out, I did not cry
I was not naughty and I did not lie
I done everything I should
And besides that, I’m oh so good

And even though it wouldn’t be right
I want Santa Claus to stay all night!

Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming to my house

Mistletoe and a christmas tree
He’s one man I know how to please
I was quiet as a mouse
When I heard his bells on the roof of my house

There he stood in all his glee
I said, Put down your bags and kiss me!

Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming, oh
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming
Santa Claus is coming to my house

I thought I had found romance
When Santa said, C’mon let’s dance!
But it did not go as I planned
He drived me flat just to play with my band

He gave me his hat and the keys to his sleigh
And said, Karla, let’s change gigs for a day!

Santa Claus is playing
Santa Claus is staying
Santa Claus is blowing
Santa isn’t going
Santa Claus is staying at my house
Go, go Santa! …

Well, he had so such fun and played so fine
I knew this year the job was mine
One thing that I do believe
Is it’s better to give than to recieve

So you better watch out and you better be good
‘Cause this year I’m comin’ to your neighborhood

Karla is coming
Karla is coming
Karla is coming
Karla is coming to your house....
