[4/4, brightly] SANTA'S FALLEN AND HE CAN'T GET UP –J. Wrabek 1. Heard the hoofs on the roof, Then the crash on the stoop, Silhouette dressed in red on the ground; Was just a matter of time, He was way too old to drive, Much less lug them heavy sacks of toys around. CHORUS: Santa's fallen and he can't get up, I think he's really messed it up; We sent the children off to bed, Shouldn't hear the things he said; Presents scattered here and there, Reindeer floundering in the air; Merry Christmas, 9-1-1, Santa's fallen and he can't get up. 2. Dumb old elf should've knowed Roof gets icy when it's cold, Don't know why he never tries to use the door; Someone better call the wife To finish off his rounds tonight, I don't think her guy's gonna fly any more. CHORUS: Santa's fallen and he can't get up, I think he's really messed it up; We sent the children off to bed, Shouldn't hear the things he said; Presents scattered here and there, Reindeer floundering in the air; Merry Christmas, 9-1-1, Santa's fallen and he can't get up. 3. Grab some toys from the sleigh, He'd have wanted it that way, It's not like he could bring ‘em in himself; And sing a carol or two While we wonder what to do With eight reindeer and the cookies and the milk. CHORUS: Santa's fallen and he can't get up, I think he's really messed it up; We sent the children off to bed, Shouldn't hear the things he said; Presents scattered here and there, Reindeer floundering in the air; Merry Christmas, 9-1-1, Santa's fallen and he can't get up. 4. Tell the kids never fear, He'll be back another year, A broken hip just can't keep a good elf down; We'll have a hole in the lawn To remind us when he's gone Of the night Santa Claus dropped in town. CHORUS: Santa's fallen and he can't get up, I think he's really messed it up; We sent the children off to bed, Shouldn't hear the things he said; Presents scattered here and there, Reindeer floundering in the air; Merry Christmas, 9-1-1, Santa's fallen and he can't get up.
