SANTA BABY
(J. Javits - P. Springer)
EARTHA KITT (RCA 47-5502, 1953)

Santa baby, just slip a sable under the tree for me
Been an awfull good girl, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, a fifty-four convertible too, light blue
I'll wait up for you dear, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Think of all the fun I've missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed
Next year I could be just as good
If you check off my Christmas list
Santa baby, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot
Been an angel all year, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa honey, one little thing I really need, the deed
To a platinum mine, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa cutie, fill my stocking with a Duplex and cheques
Sign your X on the line, Santa cutie
And hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany
I really do believe in you
Let's see if you believe in me
Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don't mean on the phone, Santa baby
So hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry tonight...

Cynthia Basinet had had the dubious distinction of being mistaken for Marilyn Monroe. That is, her highly successful MP3.com rendition of "Santa Baby" has managed to make its way into the Napster community inexplicably credited to the breathy screen legend. Also recorded by Madonna.
