Oh ya better not bark,

Ya better not bite,

Ya better not scratch the sofa tonight,

Santa Paws is coming to town!

Ya better not growl,

Ya better just purr,

Ya better not howl or shed lots of fur,

Santa Paws is coming to town!

He sees you in the kitchen,

He sees your every try,

At secretively snitchinโ€™

That very last piece of pie!

Ya better just know,

The greeting he sends,

He is saying โ€œHo, Ho,โ€

To all his furry best friends,

Santa Paws is coming to town!

Merry Christmas!
