"Here Comes Santa Claus (Right Down Santa Claus Lane)" is a popular Christmas song originally written and performed by Gene Autry in 1947. Bing Crosby, with the Andrews Sisters, performed the song in 1950 and their version is featured in The Polar Express film. It plays over a loudspeaker when Hero Boy, Hero Girl and Billy find themselves in the Communications Room.

It is also featured on the film's official soundtrack as the thirteenth track.


Bing Crosby (The Andrews Sisters) {Bing Crosby and the Andrews Sisters} [One Andrews Sister]
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Are pullin' on the reins

Bells are ringin', children singin'
All is merry and bright
Hang your stockings and say your prayers
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight!

(Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus)
(Right down Santa Claus lane)
(He's got a bag that is filled with toys)
(For the boys and girls again)
(Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle),
(What a beautiful sight)
(Jump in bed, cover your head)
('Cause Santa Claus comes tonight, tonight)
(Santa Claus comes tonight)
(Happy days), happy times, (listen to the bells and shine)
{As Santa Clause comes your way, today}

{Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus}
{Right down Santa Claus lane}
{He doesn't care if you're rich or poor}
{For he loves you just the same}

Santa knows we're God's chil'en
That makes everything right
[Fill your hearts with Christmas cheer]
{'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight, tonight}
{Santa Claus is comin' tonight}, stand bye

(instrumental break)

{Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus}
{Right down Santa Claus lane}
{He'll come around when the chimes ring out}
{Then it's Christmas morn again}

Peace on earth will come to all
If we just follow the light
(Lets give thanks to the lord above)
{'Cause Santa Clause comes tonight}
(Happy days), happy times, (listen to the bells and shine)
{Here comes Santa Cause}
