Lyrics:


Well, it's Christmas time, pretty baby a
nd the snow is falling on the ground
Well, it's Christmas time, pretty baby and the snow is falling down
Well, you be a real good little girl

Santa Claus is back in town


Got no sleigh with reindeer, no sack on my back
You're gonna see me comin' in a big black Cadillac
Oh, it's Christmas time, pretty baby and the snow is falling on the ground
Well, you be a real good little baby, Santa Claus is back in town

Hang up your pretty stockings and turn off the light
Santa Claus is comin' down your chimney tonight
Oh, it's Christmas time, pretty baby and the snow is falling on the ground
Well, you be a real good little baby, S
anta Claus is back in town
