Perry Como - "Santa Claus Is Comin' To Town ( 1959 Version)" lyrics

You better watch out!
You better not cry!
Here's the man who's gonna tell you why!

I just got back from a lovely trip
along the Milky Way!
I stopped off at the North Pole
to spend a holiday!

I called on dear old Santa Claus
to see what I could see,
he took me in his workshop
an' told his plans to me!

So! You better watch out, better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town!

He's makin' a list an' checkin' it twice
gonna find out who's naughty an' nice
Santa Claus is comin' to town!

He sees you when you're sleepin' ( he sees you! )
he knows when you're awake ( he knows! )
he knows if you've been bad or good
so be good for goodness sake!

Ho, you better watch out, you better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town!

With little tin horns and little toy drums,
rooty toot toots an' runny tum tums!
Santa Claus is comin' to town!

And curly head dolls that cuddle and coo,
elephants, boats an' kiddy cars too!
Santa Claus, Santa Clause, Santa Clause is comin'
comin' to town!

The kids in girl an' boy land
will have a jubilee!
They're gonna build a toyland town
all around the Christmas tree!

So! You better watch out, better not cry
better not pout, I'm tellin' you why;
the big jolly man in the bright red suit
with his sleigh all full of loot
Santa Claus is comin' . . .
to town!
