I think I saw ol' santa through my window christmas eve My eyes were really droopy but I really do believe It must've been ol' santa 'cause I saw his big red hat And I know my mom and dad can't fly like that
And then I heard some footsteps in the hall outside my door The same ol' christmas trick my dad had played since I was four He stands outside my bedroom yelling "ho! ho! ho!" because He knows I don't believe in santa claus
I think my daddy sees me Peeking from my door But he pretends he's santa anyway Every year he tries to fool me But I'm a big boy now I don't believe in santa or his sleigh... No way!
So I went back to bed and I curled up nice and tight I stared out my window and looked into the night And then, all of a sudden, through my window I could see Santa claus was flying by and smiling at me
Chorus: Santa claus, santa claus It must've been ol' santa claus Santa claus, santa claus Happy "ho! ho! ho!" to you
Then I heard ol' rudolph tellin' me to come outside He told me that ol' santa wanted me to take a ride I climbed out of my window and I jumped onto his sleigh Then ol' santa took me up up and away
We flew high above the rooftops of my sleepy town below I saw my big red school house and the town square picture show It was really past my bedtime and so ol' santa said "little boys like you should be in bed"
So I hollered "ho! ho! ho!" And I put on santa's hat Then he let me hold the reins awhile We pulled up to my window And I jumped back in my room And I waved goodbye to santa with a smile
When I woke up christmas morning it was clear and bright My parents said my window had blown open in the night I smiled as I told them that it must've been the cat And they asked me where I got my big red hat
