There's a man holding court tonight down in your mall
with a silken white beard, and a smooth southern drawl
and boots, so black almost plastic in make
and he waves his hand for your dreams to take
he knows, and you know he knows
with ferns and cotton and bells and lights
and candy cane structures so tall and bright
he sits in judgement with attentive ears
and takes in your whispers, hopes and fears
and you need those things, you need em for your heart
you need em for your hands, and you'll never part
he's draped in red and cloud like white
but he's made of flesh and blood just like you and I
he's coming tonight and you can't stop it
he's coming in your house, don't try and stop him
he wants your dreams he needs them for his flight
and he'll take them from your head and turn them to delight

--he sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake
--people 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, OH be good.
--because he'll get you.

He knows if you're one of God's people
some how he has these powers
just mix the letters around and you'll get Satan
I'm not making this up you know it's true
he looks so harmless but don't be mistaken
look in his eyes and you'll know he'll get you
he flies around the world with deer and magic sprinkles.
like a thief in the night, but with a certain jingle
jangle and he spreads the cheer and toys
for only the truly good girls and boys
and how he knows it, I don't know how but he knows
oh be sure, he knows your thoughts and it shows
You better watch out, you better not cry
you better not pout, oh I'm gonna tell you why.
SANTA CLAUS is coming, oh he's coming, he's coming
you won't even know he's there
he's so good at what he does
but he'll leave your cupboards bare
if you don't leave cookies near the rug
you better be good, just be as good as you can be.
and you won't be like me, don't be like me
and he knows, you know that he knows
you know he knows that you've been bad this year
and you know he knows all about your fears
and you'll get the stuff regardless of it all
it's because of the tears, just let those tears fall
and he sees your sorry and you haven't been good
but coal is an old practice and so misunderstood
we've all been naughty and not so nice
but it's when we're sorry for it, that's what's nice
and he respects that, he knows, he sees you

--he sees you when you're sleeping, he knows when you're awake
--people 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, OH be good.
--because he'll get you.

I've never seen him, but I fear him
and I've seen his blessing because of that fear
he has those elves make gifts for us all
as he looks in to his magic snowball
he knows, he can see you, be ready, BE READY
