The Lyrics

Santa Claus was Saint Nich-o-las
And now it's Santa Claus, not Saint Nich-o-las
It's been a long time gone, Saint Nich-o-las
And now it's arctic delight on a Christmas night

Every elf who works for Saint Nich-o-las
Now works for Santa Claus, not Saint Nich-o-las
If you're an elf who works for Saint Nich-o-las
You're working for Santa Claus

At the old north pole, the elves don't give a damn
Why he changed it, I can't say
Santa just liked it better that way

So take me back to see Saint Nich-o-las
No you can't go back to see Saint Nich-o-las
Been a long time gone, Saint Nich-o-las
So why does Saint Nich-o-las sit on the shelf
That's nobody's business but the elves

Ho, ho-o ho-o
(fa la la, fa la lalalalala)
Ho, ho-o ho-o
(fa la la, fa la lalalalala)
Ho, ho-o ho-o ho
(fa la la, fa la lalalalalala)
Santa Claus, Santa Claus

Ho, ho-o ho-o
(fa la la, fa la lalalalala)
Ho, ho-o ho-o
(fa la la, fa la lalalalala)
Ho, ho-o ho-o ho
(fa la la, fa la lalalalalala)
Santa Claus, Santa Claus

At the old north pole, the elves don't give a damn
Why he changed it, I can't say
Santa just liked it better that way

So take me back to see Saint Nich-o-las
No you can't go back to see Saint Nich-o-las
Been a long time gone, Saint Nich-o-las
So why does Saint Nich-o-las sit on the shelf
That's nobody's business but the elves

Santa Claus
