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 and 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 is 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, tonight
Santa claus comes tonight
Happy days, happy times, listen to the bells and chimes
As Santa Clause comes your way, today

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 Claus knows we're God's children
That makes everything right
Fill your hearts with the Christmas cheer
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight, tonight
Santa Claus comes tonight, stand by

Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus lane
He'll come around when the chimes ring out
Then it's Christmas morn again

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
Happy days, happy times, listen to the bells and chimes
Here comes Santa Claus
