Dear Santa, I've been extra good, No matter what you've heard.

Someone's spreading rumors, so don't believe a word.

 

Santa I was far away when the cat got painted pink.

And it wasn't me, no way, who filled the bird bath with black ink.

And my brother is a liar, says I set the rug on fire.

I don't know who it could be but I swear it wasn't me!

 

Santa dear it wasn't me who did the stuff they say I did.

I didn't do it, no siree. It must have been some other kid!

I'm innocent as I can be, and Santa dear I'm so sincere,

so leave the presents all for me, and don't believe a thing you hear.

 

Santa can't you see? I'm as good as I can be.

'Cause what's bad for some is really, Well, pretty good for me.

 

I was out of town the day someone broke the window panes.

And it wasn't me, no way, who poured the glue down all the drains.

And I never stole that pie, Santa that's a dirty lie!

I'm innocent so I insist, please don't cross me off your list.

 

Santa dear it wasnÕt me who did the stuff they say I did.

I didnÕt do it no siree. It must have been some other kind.

IÕm innocent as I can be and Santa Dear IÕm so sincere,

So leave the presents all for me,

 

And Santa, I promise IÕll be goodÉ

Next year!
