Santa Claus Is Backing In Town

He was always
Santa Claus to them
Every year
he'd magically appear
here in our den
They would laugh
and tease
and say you look
a lot like Dad
He'd just smile and ask
"Have you been good
or bad?"

but life ain't always
like a holiday
Some things change,
and sometimes people
go their seperate ways
He just called
and said he'd like
to be here for the kids
Wish them
Merry Christmas
when they open up
their gifts
And even though it
might be hard on me
How can I let them down?
So Santa Claus
is coming back to town

Here it is Christmas Eve
the kids are sleeping
Lights flashing
in the trees
I keep thinking
Tomorrow I'll see him,
tomorrow I'll see him

I guess
I ought to try to go to bed
I can't rehearse tomorrow
any longer in my head
He'll walk in so nonchalant,
as if he'd never gone
They'll be glad to see him,
I'll be barely hanging on
And just like that he'll go
and turn my whole world
upside down
Santa Claus
is coming back to town

No it's never really easy
when this time of year
rolls around
'Cause Santa Claus
is coming back to town
