I have recorded 2 version of this and you will receive both upon purchase. The first is the chorus only version which is the below lyrics heard twice through.

‘Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town’

You better watch out
You better not cry
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 sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake!

O! You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout
I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

The second version has the following lyrics and contains 2 verses. You will find the sheet music by clicking here. 

‘Santa Claus is Comin’ to Town’

I just came 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 to his workshop
And told his plans to me.

So, You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

Now Santa is a busy man
He has no time to play
He’s got millions of stockings
To fill on Christmas Day.

You’d better write your letter now
And mail it right away
Because he’s getting ready
His reindeers and his sleigh.

You better not cry
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 sleeping
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
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

With little tine horns
and little toy drums,
Rooty toot toots and rummy tum tums,
Santa Claus is coming to town

And curly head dolls,
That toddle and coo,
Elephants, boats and kiddie cars too,
Santa Claus is coming to town.

The kids in Girl and Boy land
Will have a jubilee,
They’re gonna build a Toyland town
All around the Christmas Tree.

So!, You better watch out!
You better not cry
Better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town
