Santa Baby – Lyrics and Video

Santa Baby lyrics and video - Operation Letter to Santa.comSanta 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 ’54 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’d check off my Christmas list

Santa baby, I wanna yacht and really that’s
Not a lot
Been an angel all year
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one 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 checks
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 a phone
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry … tonight

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus – Lyrics and Video

I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus - Operation Letter to Santa.comThe song “I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus” written by Tommy Connor was a smash hit in 1952. The smash singer was Jimmy Boyd (who later grew into the role of “Jimmy” on the original Mickey Mouse Club.

I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn’t see me down the stairs to have a peek
She thought that I was tucked up in my Bedroom fast asleep

Then I saw mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
What a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night
She didn’t see me creep down the stairs to have peak
She thought that I was tucked up in my Bedroom fast asleep.

Then I saw mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white
What a laugh it would have been
If daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.

All I Want For Christmas Is My Two Front Teeth – Lyrics

 

Every body stops
and stares at me
These two teeth are
gone as you can see
I don’t know just who
to blame for this catastrophe!
But my one wish on Christmas Eve
is as plain as it can be!

All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth!
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could with you
“Merry Christmas.”
It seems so long since I could say,
“Sister Susie sitting on a thistle!”

Gosh oh gee, how happy I’d be,
if I could only whistle (thhhh)
All I want for Christmas
is my two front teeth,
my two front teeth,
see my two front teeth.
Gee, if I could only
have my two front teeth,
then I could wish you
“Merry Christmas!”

The Stories Behind Popular Christmas Carols

Looking for a way to get into the Christmas spirit? How about singing a few bars of some popular holiday tunes to get you in the mood. Christmas is a festive time filled with good food, good friends, family, and music to bind it all together. Here is a list of six of the more popular Christmas carols that we have all grown to love.  And they all have some very interesting history behind them. Be sure to click on the title of each song to be taken to the sheet music for it.

  1. We Wish You a Merry Christmas This song wishes good tidings to all we meet during the holiday season. It also mentions a figgy pudding, an old English dessert that is set alight and served with a sprig of holly and brandy butter at each Christmas meal. 
  2. The First Noel Noel means Christmas in French. This song speaks of the events that are chronicled in the Bible surrounding the birth of Jesus.
  3. Silent Night This song was composed by Franz Gruber in 1818. The actual story has several variations, but it involves a troupe of performers traveling to towns in the Austrian Alps. One of the churches where the troupe was to perform a play had an organ out of commission. Apparently there was a mouse problem. The troupe performed in a home instead of the church. One of the ministers was moved by the performance and wrote a carol for the church’s Christmas Eve service. He approached the organist Franz Gruber about putting the words to guitar music. Fortunately, the organ was fixed by service time and Gruber sat down and played an unforgettable melody to accompany the words. This song is one of the most popular Christmas carols in the entire world. 
  4. The Twelve Days of Christmas This is a fun song to sing and play games with at Christmas. No one knows the true origin except that it is English. The fourth day was originally Colley bird not calling birds. It is another name for a blackbird. There are many variations of this song as well. People have taken to comedy in versions such as Jeff Foxworthy’s rendition, The 12 Redneck Days of Christmas and many more.
  5. Jingle Bells While you are dashing through the snow, this song was written about sleigh races in the olden days.  It was not intended to be a Christmas song at all. They would be like drag races of today only with tricked out sleighs. The song’s composer was a rogue named James Pierpont who loved to live fast and race hard. 
  6. The Christmas Song Just the words conjure up smells of roasted chestnuts. This song was originally written by Mel Torme in the 40s but was immortalized by Nat King Cole a couple of years later. Mel wrote the song in the heat of the summer in an effort to “cool off.” Who knew? Anyway, it’s one of our favorites when we snuggle inside to watch the snow fall.

What are some of your favorite Christmas songs? I bet there’s a story behind it that would surprise you. You can probably think of your own memories when you hear certain holiday songs as well, maybe a special Christmas as a child or the first Christmas you and your husband or wife were together in your new home. The power of song is amazing isn’t it? Please share your favorite Christmas music and memories with us. We would love to hear from you!
