Boogie Woogie Santa Christmas Song

Boogie Woogie Santa

Year: 1948

Written By: Leon René

Although written by Leon René 'Boogie Woogie Santa Claus' was made famous by the long line of artists that chose to record it. And many of them gave the swingin' rock and roll tune their own unique flavour. Mabel Scott was the first to turn 'Boogie Woogie Santa Claus' into a hit and it's easy to see why when you hear her bolshy bluesy tones. In 1955 Patti Page upped the tempo even further for her Christmas album from that year. Flush with brass and delightful percussion Page sounds as if she could set any festive scene alight. The Brian Selzer Orchestra may have recorded René's tune much closer to contemporary times (2002) but their version is still soaked in retro rockabilly. Quite how this sort of stuff would go down outside of party time is anyone's guess but with some mulled wine on board it is hard to beat.

 

Boogie Woogie Santa Lyrics

Well look here Jack
There's something down the track
He's got rhythm in his feet
But nothing in the sack
The boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa
Comes to town every Christmas day

Well he lives up in a mountain
Like a hermit in the cave
He never had a haircut
He never took a shave
The boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa
Comes this time every Christmas day

Well it's rock rock rock Mr. Santa
Jump jump jump Mr. Santa
Well the boogie woogie Santa Will boogie all your blues away

Got no presents for your tree
No Candy for your socks
When he starts to boogie
The whole town rocks

Mama get your hat
Put your best dress on
We're gonna jump for joy
On the Christmas morn
The boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa Claus
Boogie woogie Santa Boogie all your blues away

Well it's rock rock rock Mr. Santa
Jump jump jump Mr. Santa Claus
Well the boogie woogie Santa Will boogie all your blues away
