Santa’s Best


words and music by Rick Paul

At last it’s here, that time of year
The whole world’s filled with Christmas cheer
No time for play, hitch up the sleigh
There’ll be no reindeer games today
There’s far to go, so much to do
The man in red depends on you
The stars invite impending flight
There’ll be no rest for Santa’s best tonight

You’ll earn your keep without a peep
While hopeful children soundly sleep
You’ll only pause for Santa Claus
To leave tomorrow’s oohs and ahs
There’s far to go and much to do
But each young child depends on you
With heaven’s light to guide your flight
There’ll be no rest for Santa’s best tonight

When he’s going down each chimney
With that bag full of toys
Deliverin’ presents to good girls and boys
Without a doubt
That’s what it’s all about

Oh, yes, it’s here, that time of year
The whole world’s filled with Christmas cheer
No time for play, hitch up the sleigh
There’ll be no reindeer games today
So far to go, so much to do
You know we all depend on you
Tonight’s your night, your wondrous flight
There’ll be no rest for Santa’s best tonight
There’ll be no rest
For Santa’s best
Tonight
