Santa Claus is Coming to Town...

My friend, Karen Ball, revised Winter Wonderland to put the Christ back into Christmas. You can read the lyrics here: http://karenball.blogspot.com/2007/12/tis-season.html

Not knowing that song revision was the newest thing, my son, Nathan, revised "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."

He sang it one day when he was making lunch. Mom overheard him and ... guess what?! The next day our homeschool group sang it in front of our church's Senior Luncheon. The seniors LOVED it. Now ... the kids have been asked to sing it before the church on our Christmas Eve service. (We'll see about that!)

New words to "Santa Claus is Coming to Town."
Written by Nathan Goyer age 13

You better reach out,
You better not lie,
You better start pray-ing, I'm telling you why.
Jesus Christ is coming to town.

He gave us gift,
We threw it down,
Time to give Jesus back his crown.
Jesus Christ is coming to town.

He loves you when you're sleeping.
He loves when you're awake.
He loves when you've been bad or good,
But be good for JESUS sake!

You better reach out,
You better not lie,
You better start pray-ing, I'm telling you why.
Jesus Christ is coming,
Jesus Christ is coming,
Jesus Christ is coming to town!
