Molly Bee recorded [Side A] WILLY CLAUS and [Side B] I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS as a single in 1952 (Capitol F2285). This is one of those weird cases where Side B became the big hit and side A was mostly forgotten. (allmusic lists 250+ albums that include I SAW MOMMY KISSING SANTA CLAUS, by various artists, and none that have WILLY CLAUS.)

The only recording I could find on the 'Net is this one: "Christmas Unplugged" by Ron & Nancy OneSong.

I couldn't find any lyrics online, but I found a quote here: "Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus"

I also found this posting at another forum where someone says s/he knows all the lyrics, but didn't post them. You might try contacting this person; an e-mail address is given.

Hello! I can't believe all the people who are requesting the lyrics to "Willie Claus". My family was the only family (it seemed) in Philadelphia who know this song. My mother remembers most of the lyrics and I am going to write the lyrics down for me. I have never heard the actual song. Only my mother singing them to me and my siblings

From: HiHo_Silver
Date: 02 Dec 04 - 07:57 PM

How about this? It has been a while and memory fades but I believe this is pretty much the version we used to hear on the radio:

WILLY CLAUS

Santa Claus once caught a cold the night of Christmas Eve.
Though he planned to make his trip, he felt too sick to leave.
Suddenly he heard the bells a-jingling on his sleigh.
He looked out in time to see his outfit pull away.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Hitched the reindeers to the sleigh.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Cracked the whip and drove away.
"Giddyup, giddyup!" Willy hollered. "Giddyup!"
Driving southward in the night.
Sing-l-ing, ting-l-ing, with the bells a-jing-l-ing,
Willy soon was out of sight.

Mama Claus came rushing in and breathlessly she said:
"I just looked in Willy's room and Willy's not in bed."
"Dear, oh dear!" cried Santa Claus. "I think he's run away.
He had on his new green suit and drove off in my sleigh."
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Had a job to do that night.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Went down chimneys left and right.
Bicycles, choo-choo trains, lots of dolls and aeroplanes,
He left toys for everyone: water guns, cowboy hats,
Little dogs and pussycats, like Santa would have done.

Christmas morn, the sleigh flew home across the snow-white plains.
Mom and Santa saw at once that no one held the reins.
Out they ran to search the sleigh and when they looked in back,
Guess who they found sound asleep upon the empty sack:
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus.
Two more gifts were all he had in his arms, in his arms.
They nestled in his arms. One sad mom, and one sad dad,
Santa Claus, Mama Claus smiled on little Willy Claus,
Then they picked up their son.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Whispered, "God bless everyone."

Hard to believe "I Saw Mommy..." was the B-side of ANYTHING -- it's a great Christmas novelty song that appeals to both children and adults, each on their own level, and playfully deals with the crucial issue of whether (and, more essentially, HOW) one believes in Santa.

While presiding as Santa at the local mall the last two years, I enjoyed playing simple Christmas songs on a toy xylophone during those rare times when I wasn't occupied with a solid line of visitors. "I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus" -- even as a strictly instrumental selection -- was always instantly recognizable, always brought on plenty of smiles and lifted eyebrows, and never failed to draw a new crowd of patrons. Far and away my number-one xylophone number. (Of course, when you're restricted to a single octave, C to C, no sharps and no flats, there's a limit to the songs you can try. "Joy to the World" works very nicely, always elicited a positive response, but nothing like "Mommy.")

"Willie Claus" -- which I never heard of before -- is obviously a more arduous effort in songwriting, a lengthy lyric much like many traditional ballads, and is based upon a conceit *nearly* as clever as that of its B-side. And, of course, I haven't heard it sung and have no idea of the melody, so I can't pass judgement on that. Even so, and even though it'll probably be an interesting and cute project for some folks to resurrect and perform, I can't see it measuring up to the all-time-classic "I Saw Mommy," and am surprised that the record company people back in '52 couldn't see which of the two songs would most successfully pass the test of time.

For those of you who might be interested, the gentleman who wrote Willy Clause also wrote the music to 101 dalmatians, most notable Cruella Deville. thanks for the lyrics, I have been talking about this song for years and everyone thought I was crazy. We had a 78 record which goes to show how old this song is. In fact the 78 record is on ebay.

If memory serves, the flip side of "Willie Claus" was "Jingle-O the Brownie-O". My father had it on a 78 and would play it for me every year around Christmas on his old Victrola. I seem to remember that the 78 had a blue label. It met a sad end when my sister sat on it and it broke in two pieces. I still have it somewhere, I'm sure, as my father seldom threw anything away.

For the uninitiated, Molly Bee was a former child singer, raised in (honest to God) Beltbuckle, Tennessee. She moved to Arizona with her mother, and performed for and impressed Rex Allen, the cowboy actor and singer, who had a show there. She eventually wound up with a recording contract and became a "regular" on both the Pinky Lee Show and on Tennessee Ernie Ford's variety show. She was a cute blonde with a pony tail and lots of stage presence who became quite a star in the 1950's and into the sixties. She is, I believe, semi-retired and living in Oklahoma City, after an up-and-down later life and issues with either alcohol or drugs or both. As a teenager, I can remember thinking she was "hot," in a sort of wholesome way.

We made it a family tradition to sing it every year at our annual Christmas party and any other parties we attend.

Does anyone know all the words to the song that starts:
Santa got stuck in the chimney cause he was so big and round,
He wiggled and he giggled but he coundn't move up or down?

We enjoyed it the same time Willie Claus was popular. I found the word to Are My Ears On Straight. It is cute too. Also if anyone knows where I can get the music to these songs I would love to have that too.

WILLY CLAUS

1. Santa Claus once caught a cold the night of Christmas Eve
Though he felt he had to go, he felt too sick to leave.
Suddenly he heard the bells a-jingling on his sleigh,
He looked out just in time to see his outfit pull away.
Oh....

CHORUS: Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Hitched the reindeer to the sleigh.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, filling in for Santa Claus,
Cracked the whip and drove away.
"Giddy-up, Giddy-up", Willy hollered "Giddy-up"
Driving southward in the night.
Ting-l-ling, ting-l-ling, with the bells a jing-l-ling,
Willy soon was out of sight.

2. Mama Claus came rushing in and breathlessly she said,
"I just looked in Willy's room and Willy's not in bed".
"Dear, oh dear!" cried Santa Claus. "I think he's run away.
He had on his new green suit, and drove off in my sleigh".

CHORUS: Willy Claus, Willy Claus, filling in for Santa Claus,
Had a job to do that night.
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Went down chimneys, left and right.
Bicycles, choo-choo trains, little dolls and aeroplanes,
He left toys for everyone:
Water guns, cowboy hats, puppy dogs, and pussy cats,
Just like Santa would have done.

3. Christmas morn the sleigh flew home across the snow-white plains.
Mom and Santa saw at once that no one held the reins.
Out they ran to search the sleigh and when they looked in back,
Guess who they found sound asleep upon the empty sack.
Oh....

CHORUS: Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Two more gifts were all he had.
In his arms, in his arms, they were nestled in his arms.
One said "Mom" and one said "Dad".
Santa Claus, Mama Claus, smiled on little Willy Claus,
Then as they picked up their son,
Willy Claus, Willy Claus, little son of Santa Claus,
Whispered "God bless everyone".

Another entry for the ongoing 'Willie' debate which endures at the Mudcat. The generally anti-Willie sentiment in folksongs has not gone unnoticed. Here we have an exception, a good Willie.

=======

"Sad that kids couldn't sing this song in school today becuase of the last line of the song (God Bless everyone).....only in America"

Guest, if your school truly doesn't want you singing the song, then change 'God bless everyone' to 'Merry Christmas, everyone'. It's called folk process.
