Santa Claus is Comin' to Town is a popular Christmas song written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie and first sung in 1934 on Eddie Cantor's radio show. Frank Sinatra did a cover version in 1948, which plays in the film,The Polar Express when Santa Claus first shows up at the center of the North Pole. It is also the eighth track on the film's official soundtrack.

Lyrics

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town


He's making a list, checking it twice
He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice
Santa Claus is comin' to town


He sees you 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


Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town


(instrumental break)


Say, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town


He's making a list and he's checking it twice
He's gonna find out who's been naughty or nice
Santa Claus is comin' to town


He sees you 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


Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town
