The Lyrics

you get up on that mornin'
there are toys without warnin'
up at 5:15...the tree's so pretty
there's been reindeer up above
santa came for stockin' stuffin'
for the kids...all over the city

and he's right on time
guess his sleigh was really flyin'
its not an easy job to jet this way
but he doesn't get annoyed
cause the kids are overjoyed
they love to play with new toys all day

because its gettin' near to christmas...what a day
gettin' near to christmas...on its way
its been gettin' near to christmas...its so fine
gettin' near to christmas...elves workin' overtime
work out !

all he needs is requisition
and he'll take on the mission
if you can stay calm cool and mellow
if you take things way too far
and your act's below par
you might not get the goods from this fellow

christmas eve is also fun
but you only open one
parents like to work it this way
santa sails into the void
with his reindeers all employed
we love to wake up early that day

and now its gettin' near to christmas...what a day
gettin' near to christmas...on its way
its been gettin' near to christmas...its so fine
gettin' near to christmas...elves workin' overtime

better be good for christmas
its on its way
what a day
whoo !

gettin' near to christmas
gettin' near to christmas
gettin' near to christmas

I thought it was "Taking Care of Christmas", not "getting near to Christmas". In any case, it's a fun song, a great parody of the original. Heard it for the first time only two weeks ago, if you can believe it!
