Little Saint Nick

Album: The Beach Boys' Christmas Album (1963)
  • Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick
    Christmas comes this time each year

    Well way up north where the air gets cold
    There's a tale about Christmas
    That you've all been told
    And a real famous cat all dressed up in red
    And he spends all year workin' out on his sled

    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)

    Just a little bobsled we call the old Saint Nick
    But she'll walk a toboggan with a four speed stick
    She's candy apple red with a ski for a wheel
    And when Santa hits the gas man just watch her peel

    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)

    Run run reindeer
    Run run reindeer, whoaa
    Run run reindeer
    Run run reindeer (he don't miss no one)

    And haulin' through the snow at a frightening speed
    With a half a dozen deer with Rudy to lead
    He's got to wear his goggles 'cause the snow really flies
    And he's cruisin' every path with a little surprise

    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)
    It's the little Saint Nick (little Saint Nick)

    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick (Christmas comes this time each year)

    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick (Christmas comes this time each year)

    Oooooooo
    Merry Christmas Saint Nick (Christmas comes this time each year) Writer/s: Michael Love, Brian Wilson

  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaChuck got lots of royality rights from other artists (Beatles included) for stuff he wrote and others borrowed. It's a fun Christmas tune.
  • Barry from Sauquoit, NyOn December 23rd 1964, the Beach Boys performed "Little Saint Nick" on the ABC-TV program 'Shindig!'...
    It was track one of side one on the quintet's seventh studio album, 'The Beach Boys Christmas Album', and the album reached #6 on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart...
    And at the time they had the #1 album on the Top 200 Albums chart, 'The Beach Boys Concert', plus they also had other three albums on the chart, "All Summer Long' {at #30}, 'Surfer Girl' {at #102}, and 'Surfin' U.S.A.' {at #143, and it was in its first week on the chart}...
    R.I.P. Dennis Wilson {1944-1983}, Carl Wilson {1946-1998}, and Jimmy O'Neil {Shindig's host, 1940-2013}.
  • Steve Dotstar from Los Angeles, CaI used to wig out on the ending vocal where the dimish chord is OOO OOO OOO OOO
    Just loved that so much!
  • Dave from Cullman, AlI liked the original, but my favorite version of this is the Muppets' arrangement, on their album with John Denver. Animal: "RUN RUN REIN-DEER!"
