Mr. Santa

16 Dec

by Nancy Scott

(sung to the tune of “Mr. Sandman” by Pat Ballard)

(1)
 
Mr. Santa, bring me some dough!
I wanna travel–there’s places to go!
I wanna look nice and I wanna glisten–
I’ve been so very good, so you should listen!
 
Santa, I want some green.
Deficit spending is really obscene,
So please do more than HO-HO-HO–
Mr. Santa, bring me some dough!
 
(2)
 
Mr. Santa, bring me a Rolls.
I want a new car with fancy controls,
Digital tuning, and leather interior–
I wanna own the road and be superior!
 
Santa, I need to drive
The kind of car that says I’ve arrived
So don’t give me that sack of coals–
Mr. Santa, bring me a Rolls!
 
(3)
 
Mr. Santa, bring me a hunk,
Please make him willing–I don’t want a monk.
He must be funny and he should be clever,
And you can tell him I’ll be his forever.
 
Santa, it’s getting cold–
Pillows and flannels are no fun to hold.
I’ll buy a cozy king-size bunk–
Mr. Santa, bring me, please please please,
Mr. Santa, bring me a hunk.
