The Lyrics

The following is an excerpt from THE ALASKA DAILY NEWS ... Gnome, Alaska: Authorities today arrested a man impersonating the fictitious Santa Claus. "He was apprehended after several witnesses saw him leaving various houses carrying a large bag of goods during the holiday season," authorities said. Santa is being held on multiple counts of tresspassing, breaking and entering, burglary, emotional harrassment, disturbing the peace, and for having wild animals in a subrban neighborhood. Defense attorney Jack Frost states, "Have yourself a merry little Christmas." Defendant is expected to plead Mental Incapacity ...
I met a man named Santa, and he'd pose with you,
In a red suit.
Silver hair, a red jacket, a long white beard,
and big black boots.
He'd fly so high, oh, he'd fly so high,
and then he'd "Ho ho ho!"

I met him in a Sears in Alaska, he was
down and out.
He looked to me to be the eyes of age,
as he spoke right out.
He talked of elves, yeah, he talked of elves,
smiled, "Ho ho ho"'ed and stepped.

(Chorus:)
Mr Santa Claus. Mr Santa Claus. Mr Santa Claus. "Nick."

He made toys for the girls and boys at County Fairs,
throughout the South,
He spoke in tears of eight reindeer, how they and him
just flew about.
Now they've all retired, oh, they've all retired,
They stay home Christmas Eve.

He said "They'd prance at every chance when they would land
on roofs like planes,
But most 'the time they'd sit around pole and play
Those reindeer games."
He shook his head, and as he shook his head
I thought I heard a "Ho ho ho!"

(repeat Chorus and end.)
