Santa Baby

Words and music by Joan Javits, Phil Springer, and Tony Springer

Mister Claus, I feel as tho I know ya.
So you won't mind if I should get famil-ya, will ya?

Santa Baby, just slip a sable under the tree for me.
Been an awful good girl, Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa Baby, a fifty-four convertible, too, light blue.
I'll wait up for you dear, Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.
Think of all the fun I've missed.
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed.
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my Christmas list.
Santa Baby, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot
Been an angel all year, Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Baby, one little thing I really do need the deed
To a platinum mine, Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and cheques.
Sign your X on the line, Santa cutie,
And hurry down the chimney tonight.
Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany.
I really do believe in you.
Let's see if you believe in me.
Santa Baby, forgot to mention one little thing a ring!
I don't mean on the phone, Santa Baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

Words by Haven Gillespie; music by J. Fred Coots
radio playing

You better watch out, you better not cry,
You 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 sleepin'.
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,
You better not pout, I'm telling you why:
Santa Claus is coming to town.

Silent Night

Words by Joseph Mohr; music by Franz Gruber
radio playing

Silent night, holy night,
All is calm, all is bright.
'Round yon Virgin Mother and Child.
Holy Infant so tender and mild.
Sleep in heavenly peace,
Sleep in heavenly peace.

Silent night, holy night,
Shepherds quake at the sight.
Glories stream from heaven afar.
Heavenly hosts sing, "Alleluia."
Christ the Savior is born!
Christ the Savior is born!

Silent night, holy night,
Son of God, love's pure light.
Radiant beams from Thy holy face,
With the dawn of redeeming grace.
Jesus Lord at Thy birth.
Jesus Lord at Thy birth.

Silver and Gold

Words and music by Johnny Marks
radio playing

Silver and gold, silver and gold.
Ev'ryone wishes for silver and gold.
How do you measure its worth?
Just by the pleasure it gives here on earth.
Silver and gold, silver and gold
Mean so much more when I see
Silver and gold decorations
On ev'ry Christmas tree.

Silver Bells

Words and music by Jay Livingston and Ray Evans
radio playing

Christmas makes you feel emotional.
It may bring parties or thoughts devotional.
What ever happens or what may be,
Here is what Christmas time means to me.

City sidewalks, busy sidewalks dressed in holiday style.
In the air there's a feeling of Christmas.
Children laughing people passing meeting smile after smile,
And on every street corner you hear:
Silver bells, silver bells.
It's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

Strings of street lights, even stop lights
Blink a bright red and green,
As the shoppers rush home with their treasures.
Hear the snow crunch, see the kids bunch, this is Santa's big scene,
And above all this bustle you hear:
Silver bells, silver bells.
It's Christmas time in the city.
Ring-a-ling, hear them ring,
Soon it will be Christmas day.

Sleigh Ride

Words by Mitchell Parish; music by Leroy Anderson
radio playing

Just hear those sleigh bells jingling, ring-ting-tingling too.
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.
Outside the snow is falling and friends are calling "Yoohoo."
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.
Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, let's go, let's look at the show.
We're riding in a wonderland of snow.
Giddy-yap, giddy-yap, giddy-yap, it's grand just holding your hand.
We're gliding along with a song of a wintery fairyland
Our cheeks are nice and rosy, and comfy cozy are we.
We're snuggled up together like two birds of a feather would be.
Let's take that road before us and sing a chorus or two.
Come on, it's lovely weather for a sleigh ride together with you.

Suzy Snowflake

Words and music by Sid Tepper and Roy Bennett

Here comes Suzy Snowflake, dressed in a snow white gown,
Tap, tap, tappin' at you window pane to tell you she's in town.
Here comes Suzy Snowflake, soon you will hear her say:
"Come out ev'ryone and play with me I haven't long to stay.
If you wanna make a snowman I'll help you make one, one, two, three.
If you wanna take a sleigh ride, the ride's on me.
Here comes Suzy Snowflake, look at her tumblin' down,
Bringing joy to ev'ry girl and boy, Suzy's come to town.
