Santa Baby.....

 One of my most favorite holiday songs is "Santa Baby".  I have loved it since first....listen.  I like the sexiness old sound.  Like the slinky songstress in an old style night club.  Thick smokie air and cocktails flowing freely.  Maybe there was a secret room in the back where a group of gangsters shot craps, played cards, or other gambling activities. Of course you had to have a password to get in.  Very hush hush. 

But that is not really the point of this blog.

We were discussing how Santa Baby came to be and the topic of his red "modern" suit came up.  I have always thought that Coca-Cola came up with this in their marketing.  While surfing the net thig morning I came across this.... Did Coca-Cola Invent the Modern Image of Santa Claus?

Damn SNOPES....they are always making me eat my words.

Santa baby, just slip a Sable under the tree for me;
Been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, a '54 convertible too, light blue;

I'll wait up for you, dear; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed;

Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed;
Next year I could be just as good... if you check off my Christmas list;

Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot;

Been an angel all year; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight.

[instrumental intermission]

Santa honey, one little thing I really need...

The deed... to a platinum mine, Santa baby,

So hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with the duplex and checks;

Sign your 'X' on the line, Santa cutie,
and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree with some decorations bought at Tiffany;

I really do believe in you;
Let's see if you believe in me...

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing... A ring...

I don't mean on the phone; Santa baby,
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry, tonight
