The Hymns and Carols of Christmas

The Santa Claus Express

Words and Music: Abner Silver, Al Sherman, Al Lewis, 1935

1. There's a grand old man
With a beard as white as snow,
Dressed in red from shoes to head,
As all you kiddies know.
Soon this grand old man
Will be paying you a call,
He'll come just as silently
As the snowflakes when they fall.

Almost any day
He'll be on his way
With a load of happiness,
With a million toys
For the girls and boys
On The Santa Claus Express.
Almost any night
When you're sleeping tight
He'll be there at your address;
Every chimney top is a station stop
For the Santa Claus Express.

He's got aeroplanes and streamline trains;
Anything your heart may crave;
But he hasn't got an awful lot
For the kids who don't behave;
So be very good
Do the things you should,
Or he'll cross out your address;
If you're not "in dutch"
You'll get twice as much from
The Santa Claus Express.

2. At the old north pole,
There's a busy factory,
Making noise and making toys
For Christmas jollity.
Near the factory
There's a train of silver cars,
With that bearded engineer
Who can travel like the stars;

Almost any day
He'll be on his way
With a load of happiness,
With a million toys
For the girls and boys
On The Santa Claus Express.
Almost any night
When you're sleeping tight
He'll be there at your address;
Every chimney top is a station stop
For the Santa Claus Express.

He's got soldier hats and pussy cats,
Little poodle dogs that bark;
He's got ev'ry kind of animal
That they had in Noah's Ark;
So be good today
For he's on his way
With a load of happiness;
With a million toys
For the girls and boys on
The Santa Claus Express.
