One of my favourite Christmas songs is ‘Santa Baby’ by Eartha Kitt. (Interesting note : For those who don’t know, Eartha Kit was the original Cat Woman on TV’s show Batman)
I know many artists have sang their versions but none come close to Eartha’s distinctive and incomparable voice.
What I love is that Eartha’s requests are timeless and a good example of go big or go home. I mean who would ask for a platinum mine? a yacht? Tell which girl wouldn’t still want these things?
Here are the lyrics and video….note, I’ve made some updates but kept it close to its original form….(Note, I was going to attach the video but I wasn’t feeling it and it takes away from the song in my opinion. So please enjoy the one attached.)
Here’s the song…
Santa Baby, slip a few iPads under the tree, For me. been an awful good girl, Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa baby, a ’14 Maybach too, silvery 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 bad boys that I haven’t kissed, Next year I could be half as good, If you’ll check off my Christmas list,
Santa baby, I wanna a yacht, and really that’s not a lot, Been an angel all year, Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa honey, there’s one thing I really do need, The deed to a platinum mine, Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.
Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a trump tower duplex, And checks. 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’s, 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.
