Eartha Kitt

Eartha Mae Kitt (January 17, 1927 – December 25, 2008) was an American singer, actress, and cabaret star. She was perhaps best known for her highly distinctive singing style and her 1953 hit recordings of "C'est Si Bon" and the enduring Christmas novelty smash "Santa Baby". Orson Welles once called her the "most exciting woman in the world." She took over the role of Catwoman for the third and final season of the 1960s Batman television series, replacing Julie Newmar, who was unavailable due to other commitments. She also voiced Yzma on Disney's The Emperor's New Groove. more »

I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
Poor little Eartha is sad
I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
'Cause I didn’t wanna be bad

Jim promised me a sable coat
Just for a little kiss
A diamond ring and motorboat
Just for a little kiss

He said “I’ll buy out the stores
Everything I have is yours
I will be your Santa Claus 
Just for a little kiss”

I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
My little Jimmy is mad
I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
'Cause I didn’t wanna be bad

Jack promised me a ruby clip
Just for a tiny squeeze
A wardrobe plus a Paris trip
Just for a tiny squeeze

He said, “Dear be nice to me 
And on Christmas Day you’ll see
Presents ‘round your Christmas tree
Just for a tiny squeeze”

But I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
My little Jackie is mad
I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
'Cause I didn’t wanna be bad

I’m gettin’ nothin’ for Christmas
'Cause I didn’t wanna be bad

So take my advice
I think you should
It’s good to be good
But not too good
Or you’ll get

Nothin’ for Christmas
