A song from “Santa Claus Gets Busy” by Enid Blyton


There’s just three weeks until Christmas so Santa must be getting all the toys ready to deliver to all the children around the world.

Here’s a song from “Santa Claus Gets Busy” a musical play for juniors in one act, written by Blyton.

The toys:
One by one now into the sack we go,
Soldier, sailor, rabbit and all in a row
Santa Claus is waiting for his sack to fill,
When we are inside we know we must keep still.

Then down the chimneys Santa Claus will climb,
Brining children toys at Christmas time;
In their stockings he will put us one and all,
Golliwog and Teddy Bear and Duckling small.

When they wake up, all the girls and boys
Will be glad to see so many toys,
How they’ll clap to see so many toys,
How they’ll clap their hands and shout “Hip-hip-hurray!”
What a lovely time we’ll have this Christmas Day!

Good-bye, good-bye, now we all must go
On our journey over ice and snow.
Close the sack and tie it up and make it fast,
Off we go with dear old Santa Claus at last!

Santa:
Gnomes and fairies, I must say goodbye,
Drive my reindeer up into the sky,
I’ll come back again another year to you,
But now I must depart and journey all night through!
