  • Baboom baboom baboom baboom baboom baboom
    Baboom baboom baboom baboom baboom baboom

    Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree for me
    Been an awful good girl
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa baby, a '54 convertible too convertible too, light blue
    I'll wait up for you, dear
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Think of all the fun I've missed
    Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
    Next year I could be just as good
    If you'll check off my Christmas list

    Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot
    Been an angel all year
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa honey one thing I really need, the deed
    To a platinum mine
    Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight

    Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex and checks
    Sign your 'x' on the line
    Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

    Come and trim my Christmas tree
    With some decorations bought at Tiffany
    I really do believe in you
    Let's see if you believe in me

    Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
    I don't mean on the phone
    Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
    Hurry down the chimney tonight
    Hurry, tonight

  • Rachael from FloridaI actually personally know Joan Javits. Her granddaughter and I have been childhood friends since we were 3 years old and so have my mom and her mom. She's a sweet lady.
  • Kent from Greensburg, PaI think this has subliminal sexual undertones especially the part about "trimming [the] Christmas tree."
  • B.l. from Barry, TxLocal legendary DJ Ron Chapman included a remake of this song in a Christmas album he produced several years ago. Most of the lyrics were changed to reflect a Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex setting, but most perplexing was the addition of the lyric "Santa Baby, send angels down every chimney tonight." My question was, and remains now, when did Santa Claus gain the ability to control angels and why would anyone want them coming down their chimney?
  • Scott from Port Charlotte, FlFor some reason I have a vague memory of Marilyn Monroe singing this in one of her films, does anyone know anything about this?
  • Eric Feinberg from New York, NyThe best and most innovative version of santa baby is sung by cynthia basinet in the late 1990's and is as fresh today as it was in 1999. Cynthia's version was featured in the movie party monster.
  • Mike from Santa Barbara, CaThis is one of the most clever novelty songs of the 1950's.
