HERE COMES SANTA CLAUS
Words and Music by Gene Autry and Oakly Haldeman

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer are pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright
Hang your stockings and say your prayers, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He’s got a bag that is filled with toys for boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, what a beautiful sight
Jump in bed and cover your head, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He doesn’t care if you’re rich or poor, he loves you just the same
Santa knows we’re all God’s children, that makes everything right
Fill your hearts with Christmas cheer, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
He’ll come around when chimes ring ou, it’s Christmas morn again
Peace on Earth will come to all if we just follow the light
Let’s give thanks to the lord above, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus, right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeers pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright
Hang your stockings and say your prayers, ’cause Santa Claus comes tonight
