You better watch out have nothing to fear
You better not Of course you can cry!
You better not pout let it all out
I’m telling you why, honey, you’re free to express your emotions ANY TIME
Santa Claus is coming to town, but if this feels like too much, it’s okay if you need some downtime

You better watch out needn’t be scared
You ’ll better not cry be totally fine
So, you better not pout have a few doubts?
I’m telling you why, honey, that’s a perfectly normal reaction
Technically speaking, Santa Claus is coming to town a “merry” old man in red velour, with a history of breaking and entering

He’s making a list, but it will have no bearing on whether you receive gifts
He’s checking it twice, because even Santa makes mistakes sometimes, right?
He’s going to find out who’s naughty strong-willed and nice or socially conditioned to put their own needs aside
Santa Claus is coming to town, but as someone who’s unqualified to make psychological assessments of children, he’ll refrain from making judgments, or resorting to bribes

He sees you respects your privacy when you’re sleeping
He knows doesn’t monitor you when you’re awake
He knows when you’ve been everyone has bad or and good days
So be good for goodness relax, sweetheart, for your own sake

You better watch slowly breathe in, then slowly breathe out
You better not cry could count down from five
You better not pout Or use your words, scout
I’m telling you why, honey, I get it. Christmas is A LOT. Whoever sang, “It’s the most wonderful time of the year,” only managed to ramp the pressure up
Santa Claus is coming to town, but as his schedule is so inflexible, he won’t get here till after your bedtime

He won’t watch sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake that would be strange
He ’s also knows when you’ve been bad or good familiar with the guidelines
So be good for goodness sake I leave out for him every year, next to the sugar-free cookie plate:

You better watch out He must never shout
You better not cry He cannot drink and sleigh-ride
You better not pout, I’m telling you why We would really appreciate it if he could say, “Ho, Ho, Ho,” in his quiet voice
And Santa Claus is only coming to town if he’s completed all necessary criminal background checks, and remembered to get his flu shot
