Santa Claus Is Hungry Tonight

(sing to the tune of “Santa Claus Is Coming to Town”)

Oh, you better get up
and make something quick.
It wouldn’t be smart
to starve old Saint Nick.
Santa Claus is hungry tonight.

Your mom saved him some ice cream
and a slice of pumpkin pie.
Too bad you finished both of them
while he was flying ’cross the sky.

Oh, you needed a snack
and didn’t think twice.
You ate Santa’s treats,
so now pay the price.
Santa Claus is hungry tonight.

He knows you are not sleeping.
Your snoring is so fake.
You’d better get yourself downstairs
and bake the man a cake.

Oh, you getter get up
and make something quick.
It wouldn’t be smart to starve old Saint Nick.
Santa Claus is hungry tonight.
