I Saw Mommy Kissing Santa Claus

Words & Music by Thomas Connor
Recorded by Jimmy Boyd, 1952 (#1)

C     C/B   Am7     Em
I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus

Am     C        Am    C         G7
Underneath the mistletoe last night.

    Dm     Dm+7    G7
She didn't see me creep

         CM7/6     CM7   CM7/6
Down the stairs to have a peep;

     D          Am7     D7
She thought that I was tucked

   D9     G       D7     G
Up in my bedroom fast asleep.

      C     C/B   Am7     Em
Then, I saw Mommy tickle Santa Claus

CM7/6  CM7     CM7/6    CM7    F
Underneath his beard so snowy white;

            F       DM7        G7
Oh, what a laugh it would have been

   C      E7       A7
If Daddy had only seen

D7     C      Am     F     G7   C
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.
