Sequence & Lyrics Here Comes Santa Claus

No permission to download
Song Name
Here Comes Santa Claus
Gene Autry
FREE SEQUENCE from Listen To Our Lights "Here Comes Santa Claus" by Gene Autry from the album "His Christmas Album (Digitally Remastered)" with singing face. This is a simple, feel-good sequence and towards the end I do a police light bar effect since this is the song in Christmas Vacation where the cops raid Clark's house.

I originally did this song for my Light-O-Rama display and at that time I pulled the audio from the "Official National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation 10th Anniversary Movie Soundtrack" CD on track 13 titled "Here Comes Santa Claus--Gene Autry"
Manufacturer:‎ Warner Bros.; LabelWarner Bros. Records (3003234439520); ASIN: B0011E0LXK
There's never been an official release of the Christmas Vacation soundtrack. There were 20,000 numbered CDs of a bootleg soundtrack that were sold at Six Flags Magic Mountain. Normally can be found on eBay.
I converted this track on the CD to an MP3 and then cut the song down a bit. I was able to find the same track on Amazon.com and steps to reproduce the track I originally sequenced to.

[Layout Notes]

Written by Gene Autry and Oakley Haldeman

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus Lane
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeers pulling on the reins
Bells are ringing, children singing, all is merry and bright
So hang your stockings and say your prayers
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus Lane
He's got a bag that's filled with toys for boys and girls again
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle, oh what a beautiful sight
So jump in bed and cover your head
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

(Instrumental trumpet)
(Instrumental xylophone)

Here comes Santa Claus
Here comes Santa Claus
Right down Santa Claus Lane
He'll come around when chimes ring out that it's Christmas time again

Peace on Earth will come to all if we just follow the light
So let's give thanks to the lord above
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight

So let's give thanks to the lord above
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
