**********************

I’m celebrating the SANTA CLAUS IS COMIN’ TO TOWN sing-along that I just got back from the wonderful Paul Raiman of www.MyRehearsalPianist.com.

I absolutely cannot wait to sing with the instrumental and the marvelous illustration by Steven Kellogg:

Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town

Word and Music by J. Fred Coots and Haven Gillespie
Illustrated by Steven Kellogg

This wonderful illustration (and of course the instrumental Paul plays for me) has the full set of lyrics that one just can’t find recorded.  But if you come to a Sing Books performance, we might just get to sing the whole thing together.

Until then, my favorite version which does contain the fun first verse about a trip around the Milky Way, ending up at the North Pole to visit Santa, is by Ella Fitzgerald from here Christmas album, ELLA WISHES YOU A SWINGING CHRISTMAS:
