Lyrics

SANTA CLAUS IS MAKIN HIS ROUNDS (NORRIS, BRYANT, DEATON)

in re
THE ELVES THEY SING WHILE HAMMERING 'TIL THEIR WORK IS DONE
THE SUIT OF RED IS STEAMED AND PRESSED HE'S THROWIN' IT ON
THE WORKSHOP'S CLOSIN' DOWN
IT'S TIME FOR SANTA CLAUS TO MAKE HIS ROUNDS

MRS. CLAUS THOUGH SHE'S EXHAUSTED TUCKS IN THE ELVES
SHE PLANTS A KISS ON HUBBY'S LIPS AND BIDS HIM FAREWELL
HER ONLY LONELY NIGHT IN NORTH POLE TOWN
IS WHEN SANTA CLAUS IS MAKIN' HIS ROUNDS

THE REINDEER ARE READY SO GIDDY AND GAY
CAN'T WAIT TO DELIVER THE TOYS IN THE SLEIGH
SO SET OUT THE COOKIES HE'S HEADIN' YOUR WAY
THE KIDS'LL BE DREAMIN' THEIR EYES'LL BE GLEAMIN' ON CHRISTMAS DAY

HE PULLS THE REIGNS THE SLEIGHBELLS RING
HE LIFTS TO THE SKY
NOBODY ON THE NAUGHTY LIST THE BOOK'S LEFT BEHIND
HE'LL HIT EVERY HOME IN EVERY TOWN
YEAH SANTA CLAUS IS MAKIN' HIS ROUNDS

LONDON, DUBLIN, PARIS AND ROME
CAIRO, RIO, HE'S SPANNIN' THE GLOBE
MOSCOW, CAPE TOWN AND OFF TO BEIJING
SYDNEY, BELIZE, AND EVERY CITY BETWEEN

LA, NEW YORK, IT'S ON WITH THE SHOW
NASHVILLE, DETROIT AND SANTIAGO
VANCOUVER, DENVER AND AMARILLO
SARASOTA, TIAJUNA, LAST STOP IS NOME
THEN HE'S WRAPPING UP THE EVENING AND IT'S HO HO HOME

HE SETS HIS COURSE HE'S HEADIN NORTH TO BEAT THE SUNRISE
SNEAKIN IN, CAN'T HELP BUT GRIN, HE MADE RECORD TIME
BEST CHRISTMAS WITHOUT A DOUBT, YEAH SANTA, HE'S MAKIN' HIS ROUNDS
SANTA, HE'S MAKIN' HIS ROUNDS
