Santa Claus is coming to town

My-Music-icon

Nu Sinterklaas het land uit is, is het weer tijd om Kerstliedjes te zingen in de klas. Een favoriet Engels nummer is bij mij ‘Santa Claus is coming to town’. Het is een echte klassieker die in veel verschillende uitvoeringen op internet te vinden is.

 

Tekst

You better watch out!
Better not cry!
Better not pout!
I’m telling you why,
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

He’s making a list
and checking it twice.
He’s gonna find out who’s naughty and nice.
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

He sees when you’re sleeping.
He knows when you’re awake.
He knows if you’ve been bad or good.
So be good for goodness sake!

You better watch out!
Better not cry!
Better not pout!
I’m telling you why,
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

With little tin horns and little toy drums,
rootie-toot-toots and rum-a-tum tums.
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

Curly head dolls that toddle and coo,
elephants, boats and kiddie cars too.
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.

The kids and girls in boyland
will have a jubilee.
They’re going to build a toyland town,
all around the Christmas tree.

You better watch out!
Better not cry!
Better not pout!
I’m telling you why,
Santa Claus is comin’ to town.
