“Santa Claus You are Much too Fat” (to the tune of Jingle Bells)

I heard a reindeer hoof, then Santa dressed in red came crashing thru’ the roof, and landed in my bed. I thought it was a dream, but quickly did I wake, as soon as I heard Santa yell “I want a piece of cake”

refrain….. Ohhhh, Santa Claus Santa Claus You are much too fat I was sleeping peacefully but now my bed is flat. Ohhhh Santa Claus Santa Claus How much do you weigh? I’m glad I’m not a reindeer That has to pull your sleigh.

He got up off the floor and said “How do you do?” I said “my back is sore, my head is black and blue” “So sorry” he replied, and then he asked my name. He offered me a ride, I said “No thank you just the same.”

(refrain)

I heard a “ho ho ho”, the sleigh was in the sky but it was moving slow and wasn’t very high It wobbled in the air, I hoped it wouldn’t fall; Said Santa chewing cookies “Merry Christmas, one and all!”

(refrain)

…the kids have a BLAST with this, and the parents think it is hysterical.


Reindeer Are Tapping

Reindeer are tapping on the rooftop and while their tapping,
Santa is getting all the packages for you and me
Down through the chimney with his knapsack
And when the job is finished
Dear Santa and his reindeer fly away

Fingerplay: I had a little snowman

I had a little snowman
He had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny, And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
Looking for his lunch,
Ate that snowman’s nose. . . NIBBLE, NIBBLE, CRUNCH!!


Know that it is March and that Christmas is a long way off, but thought that maybe someone would be interested is the following.

Additional to “When Santa got stuck up the chimney” sent in by Cathy and currently first on the Christmas Song pages.

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

He began to to shout,

You girls and boys,

Won’t get any toys,

If you don’t pull me out.

There’s soot on my back,

And my beard is all black,

My nose is tickling too.!

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

Achoo, Achoo, Achoo.

Was on the eve before Christmas Day,

When Santa Claus arrived on his sleigh,

Into the chimney he climbed with his sack,

But he was so fat – he couldn’t get back.

Oh, what a terrible plight, gangway,

He stayed up there all night.

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

He began to yell.

Oh hurry, please,

It’s all such a squeeze,

The reindeer’s stuck as well!

His head’s up there in the cold night air,

Now Rudolph’s nose is BLUE!!

When Santa got stuck up the chimney,

Achoo, Achoo, Achoo, Achoo, Achoo, Achoo, ACHOO!


When Santa got stuck in the chimney,

He began to shout

Those boys and girls won’t get any toys

If they don’t get me out!

He’s got soot in his mouth

His eyes are black

And his nose is tickly too!

When Santa got stuck in the chimney,

Ahchoo , ahchoo , ahchoo!


When Santa comes down the chimney,

I should like to peek,

But he’ll never come, no never,

Until I’m fast asleep!


5 little Christmas Trees

Standing all alone

Their heart were very sad

‘Cause they hadn’t found a home.

Then chop went the axe

And down fell the tree

And off they went with a happy family!

(continue from 4-1 Christmas Trees)

No little Christmas Trees

Standing all alone

Their hearts were very happy

‘Cause they all found a home!!!
