Is Santa coming?
Is Santa coming?
I've weighted eighty-six years

And is it snowing?
Will it be snowing
When Santa gets here?

There have been strangers
Can you imagine—strangers!
They watch me wet the bed

And how they worry
I think I see them worry
But maybe it's my head

I see the old house
The wood is shining
My mother lives here

The goats need milking
The world is shining
I'm holding it near

I'm licking my lips
My eyes are milky
There's humming in my ear

Is Santa coming?
Will it be snowing
When I disappear?

I think it's raining
The window's murky
The night is blue

Could it be raining?
Rain on Christmas?
That won't do...
