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, here comes Santa Claus,
Right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen, Blitzen, all his reindeer
Pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing,
All is merry and bright
Hang your stockings and say a prayer,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Riding down Santa Claus Lane
He's got a bag that's filled with toys
For boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
What a beautiful sight
Jump in bed and cover up your head,
Because Santa Claus comes tonight
Here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Riding down Santa Claus Lane
He doesn't care if you're a rich or poor boy,
He loves you just the same
Santa knows that we're God's children,
That makes everything right
Fill your hears with Christmas cheer,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
Well, here comes Santa Claus, here comes Santa Claus,
Riding down Santa Claus Lane
He'll come around when the chimes ring out
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
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
