Santa Claus (Do You Ever Come To The Ghetto) – Lyrics
Orginally song by – Carlene Davis

Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, do you ever wonder why we suffer so
Santa Claus, will you come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, we would like to see where your reindeers go.
All year long we’ve been beating down crime
How we hold on through those hard times
We aint gonna fight, we aint gonna fuss
But where are the presents that you brought for us.
Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, do you ever wonder why we suffer so
Santa Claus, will you come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, we would like to see where your reindeers go.
We see you in the papers,
you’re on TV giving the toys to some pickney
Wondering what’s happening to poor people like we.
Is it because we no have no chimney?
Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, do you ever wonder why we suffer so
Santa Claus, will you come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, we would like to see where your reindeers go.
We see you in the papers,
you’re on TV giving the toys to some pickney
Wondering what’s happening to poor people like we.
Is it because we no have no chimney?
Is because we nuh have big money
Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, do you ever wonder why we suffer so
Santa Claus, will you come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, we would like to see where your reindeers go.
All year long we’ve been beating down crime
How we hold on through those hard times
We aint gonna fight, we aint gonna fuss
But where are the presents that you brought for us.
Santa Claus, do you ever come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, do you ever wonder why we suffer so
Santa Claus, will you come to the ghetto
Santa Claus, we would like to see where your reindeers go.

 

The Joe Gibbs All-stars – Let Christmas Catch You In A Good Mood

Verse One:
All I want for Christmas
Is a beat to dance in time
If you don’t have any money
I will let you have some of mine

All year round, been working
My place is my time for fun
If you should feel the same way
Just put on your good shoes and come

(Chorus)
Let the christmas catch you in a good mood
Let the christmas catch you feeling fine
Put on your dancing shoes and come with me tonight
We’re gonna rock till broad daylight
(repeat)

Verse Two:
If your shoes start squeezing you
Just kick them off, that’s fine
Nothing should stop your feet from dancing
Come on it’s christmas time

(Chorus x2)

(Repeat Verse Two)

(Chorus til fade)
