Santa Claus

Sung to the tune of “Iron Man”

(Apologies to Black Sabbath)

I am Santa Claus!

He hasn’t lost his mind
He can see and is not blind.
Can he fly at all
Or if he stops, will he fall?

He is alive, not dead;
He has gift lists in his head.
We’ll not pass him there;
We can’t help but to care.

He has built a brand
In the great North Pole wasteland.
Where he traveled from
To give presents to mankind.

Everyone wants him
He just stares at the world
Planning his flight path
That he will soon go on.

Now the time is here
For Santa Claus to spread cheer.
Vengeance from the sleigh
Gives coal to bad kids that stray.

Everyone wants him;
They all make their lists.
Everyone loves him;
Now he rises from the mists.

Heavy boots of skin
Make the children grin and grin
Running as fast as they can
Santa Claus rides again!
