You can hear this recording on this blog page, or click to play.


SANTA BABY
Words and music by Phil Springer, Tony Springer, and Joan Javits.
New York: Trinity Music, Inc, © 1953.
As sung by Eartha Kitt.

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

2. Santa, baby, a fifty-four convertible, too,
Light blue.
I'll wait up for you, dear,
Santa, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

BRIDGE 1: Think of 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 check off my Christmas list.

3. 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.

4. Santa, honey, one little thing I really do need:
The deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

5. 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.

BRIDGE 2: 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.

6. Santa, baby, forgot to mention one little thing:
A ring.
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Hurry down the chimney tonight.
Hurry.
Tonight.


Note: according to the catalog entry at Indiana University, the sheet music also has a verse that begins: "Mister 'Claus,' I feel as tho I know ya so you won't mind if I should get famil-ya, will ya?"—but Eartha Kitt did not record this.

You can hear this parody at The Internet Archive:


SANTA BABY
As sung by Homer & Jethro.

1. Santy, baby, I need a milkin' pail for my cow,
And how!
Used my shoes up till now,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

2. Santy, baby, the pig-house sorta needs a new roof,
Smell-proof,
So make sure you don't goof,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

BRIDGE 1: My poor hen needs a bed.
She stays up all night an', gee, I bet she's dead.
Maybe she might lay more eggs
If she could sorta rest her legs.

3. Santy, baby, my goat needs lots o' feed, heaven knows,
Just so's
He'll stop eatin' my clothes,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

4. Santy, baby, I need a brand-new guitar pick.
I vow,
I used my toenail up till now,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

5. Santy, baby, I need a brand-new huntin' jacket,
So there!
You know I can't go a-huntin' bare,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

BRIDGE 2: Don't bring me no little shoat,
And don't bring me no billy goat.
The neighbors shore would throw a fit
As soon as they got wind of it.

6. Santy, baby, I been a good boy all year long.
Don't scold.
I brought home ever'thing that I stoled,
Santy, baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Emma B: Thanks for the link. (It's to a video of Eartha Kitt singing SANTA BABY.)

Is it my imagination, or do those "backup singers" (who are really just lip-sync'ing to EK's solo voice) look like female impersonators?

Maybe it's because the only people you see nowadays who act sexy in that particular manner—are female impersonators.

Oh, maybe I should count Madonna. She tries, but she's no Eartha Kitt.
