"The Man Who Would Be Santa" as written by and Matthew B. Scannell....
And the man who would be Santa slips into the room
And the hour of daylight's yet to come, but he hopes they don't wake too soon
All the presents wrapped in paper and tied with a bow
The children sleep upstairs and Santa works below
And he can hear the children dreaming

Oh, la la la, la la la
Ah, la la la, la la la

[Chorus]
And he says
All I want is for you to have
A life you love and live
Take from me all I have to give
Because you are in my heart

And the man who would be Santa tells his son to write
And to call him if he needs him in the middle of the night
Don't you worry don't you cry now you'll do just fine
Your mother and I love you
We think about you all the time
And he can see the train is leaving

Oh, la la la, la la la
Ah, la la la, la la la

[Chorus]

Now the old man sits and tells of days when time stood still
The hours always seem to fade but the memory never will
And all the love that you gave me
And all the dreams in the night
And I just want to thank you while the day's still light
But I can see the sun is setting

Oh, la la la, la la la

[Chorus: x2]

You are in my heart
