Santa & His Reindeer Used to Live Here

Siding on the sides, washer in the rear,
Santa and his reindeer used to live right here.

Here's a Christmas story that you probably didn't know,
Like most Christmas stories, happened long time ago.
In a renovated double near Broad and St. Bernard,
Lived a fat little man with some livestock in his yard.
There were elves in and out, a refrigerated van,
People thought it was a day-care or a Sno-Ball stand.
Been a bunch of tenants, been a bunch of years,
But Santa and his reindeer used to live right here.

Time Saver time, spent a lot of dimes,
Reindeer need Icees in the hot summertime.
Working through the rain, through the hurricane,
Wasn't just playin' no reindeer games.
Blitzen went to McDonogh, Rudolph went to Colton school,
It was rough bein' reindeer 'fore reindeer was cool.
Dasher went to Warren Easton, Donna went to Sacred Heart;
She didn't make the dances, but they'd meet in City Park.

Porch in the front, yard in the back,
Still got toys in the attic in a sack.
Siding on the sides, washer in the rear,
Santa and his reindeer used to live right here.

Sold a little toys, paid a little rent,
Made deliveries on the streetcar, it was only 7 cents.
They needed something bigger for a bigger operation,
Doin' lot of Greyhound, waitin' at the station.
They were lookin' at a 4-door Oldsmobile,
But instead bought a sleigh out the News-On-Wheels.
Added power steering, added power brakes,
Had that sled painted red at the Fact-O-Bake.

The traffic, the weather, "We really want to stay,"
But Santa's pretty tired gettin' his sleigh towed away.
You know where they went, you know it's cold up there,
You know it's in the middle of everywhere.
I wanna make it plain, I want to make it clear,
Santa and his reindeer used to live right here.

Porch in the front, yard in the back,
Still got toys in the attic in a sack.
Siding on the sides, washer in the rear,
Santa and his reindeer used to live right here.
