Have transcribed song from radio program, probably Mary Cliff's Traditions. Who wrote and who performs it?

Do that little jumpy-up dance and shake them dungarees down
I want you to put on a clean pair of pants; we're gonna go down town.
I've got a fifty-dollar Christmas check we can spend any way we please.
Tonight we ain't eatin' that elbow macaroni and cottage cheese.

I want you to go to the bathroom baby, before we're out on the street;
Once we're on that trolley car there's no place to pee.
Your father's in some Goddam bar around 80th and Island Road;
Him and his pals, the Three Musketeers, are tying on another load,
Yeah, him and his pals Three Musketeers, are tying on another load.

Baby Jesus was born in a stable
But he had a mother and father
Working things out together.
Now that baby had a good home.

You know Christmas ain't about money
Or where your family is livin'.
No, no, it's treatin' people right who love you,
Not leavin' them all alone.

So do that little jumpy-up dance and shake them dungarees down;
I want you to put on a clean pair of pants; we're gonna go down town.
I've got a fifty-dollar Christmas check we can spend any way we please
Tonight we ain't eatin' that elbow macaroni and cottage cheese,
No, tonight we ain't eatin' that elbow macaroni and cottage cheese.
