Mrs. Claus put on a pot of hot chocolate
Laid out the famous red suit
Joey Joe Joe Junior-Santa's favorite elf
Shined up the big black boots
Getting ready for the big night

Once upon a time, we believe, long ago and far away
A brand new mother laid a brand new baby on a bed of freshly cut hay
Her heart was filled with wonder and a sense of pure delight
As the heavens cried out with a mighty shout, "This is the big night!"

CommentsTo quote some farmer from Glencoe, Oklahoma: "I don't know, but I've been told. There's something going on at the North Pole." Rudolph shined up his reindeer shoes, put on some Rhythm and Blues mp3's, and did a four-step dance called The Reindeer Shuffle. Rudolph says, "I'm ready to fly!" You can try to play it cool, but you can't escape it. Every year the excitement builds as the big night approaches and we celebrate the truly BIG NIGHT. My buddy from Altus, Oklahoma, the legendary Moon Martin, sings harmony and the Jordanaires with Miss Millie sing the backing vocals. You couldn't ask for a better Christmas present. The Jordanaires recorded at Masterlink Studios. Moon Martin recorded ot Pony Boy Studios. John Herron recorded at Rekordio USA.
