SIX WORD » LIFE

Buck Owens' take on Santa's "identity".

by Staraj on December 18, 2013   |  FacebooktwitterTumblr


♫ Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him
It's not the way I had him pictured
Santa was much too thin
Well he didn't come down the chimney
So Mama must have let him in
Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him

Well they thought that I was fast a sleepin'
They thought that I was tucked in bed
They never thought that I'd come a peepin'
Or that I'd hear what was said
Santa put his arm around Momma
And Momma put her arm around him
So if Santa Claus ain't Daddy
Then I'm gonna tell on them

Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him
It's not the way I had him pictured
Santa was much too thin
Well he didn't come down the chimney
So Mama must have let him in
Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him

I never saw Dancer or Prancer
I never heard the sleigh bells ring
I never saw the red nosed reindeer
Like they show him on the TV screen
But he sure brought a lot of presents
So Santa Claus he must have been

Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him
It's not the way I had him pictured
Santa was much too thin
Well he didn't come down the chimney
So Mama must have let him in
Santa looked a lot like Daddy
Or Daddy looked a lot like him ♫

Of all the silly kerfuffles currently being debated in the media, what Santa Claus REALLY looks like has to be the silliest.

(I, of course, would recognize his rosy red cheeks in pitch black darkness. But then, I have a "gift" for sensing his presence.)
