About Here Comes Santa Claus

"Here Comes Santa Claus (Down Santa Claus Lane)" is a Christmas song originally written and performed by Gene Autry, with music composed by Oakley Haldeman. Autry's original recording (in which he pronounces Santa Claus as "Santy Claus") was a top-10 hit on the pop and country charts; the song would go on to be covered many times in the subsequent decades. Autry got the idea for the song after riding his horse in the 1946 Santa Claus Lane Parade (now the Hollywood Christmas Parade) in Los Angeles, during which crowds of spectators chanted, "Here comes Santa Claus". This inspired him to write a song that Haldeman set to music. Autry's lyrics combined two veins of the Christmas tradition, the mythology of Santa Claus and the Christian origin of the holiday (most explicitly in its mention of the nativity promise of "peace on Earth"). A demo recording was made by singer/guitarist Johnny Bond, whose recording made use of ice cubes to mimic the sound of the jingling sleigh-bells. This inspired the use of real sleigh-bells in Autry's own recording of the song.

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer are pullin' on the reins
Bells are ringin', children singin', all is merry and bright
Hang your stockings say your prayers 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane
He's got a bag that's filled with toys for the boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, what a beautiful sight
Jump in bed, cover up your head, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane
He doesn't care if you're rich or poor, for he loves you just the same
Santa knows that we're God's children, that makes everything right
Fill your hears with the Christmas cheer, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus right down Santa Claus Lane
He'll come around when chimes ring out, then it's Christmas morn again
Peace on earth will come to all, if we just follow the light
Fill your hears with the Christmas cheer, 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Peace on earth will come to all, if we just follow the light
Let's give thanks to the Lord above 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
Let's give thanks to the Lord above 'cause Santa Claus comes tonight
Tonight, tonight
