Subject: Lyr Add: SANTA'S MOVIN' ON (Homer and Jethro)
This is the only instance I know of where H&J wrote TWO parodies of the same original. This one doesn't quite measure up to the previous one.

Transcribed from the sound file at The Record Lady's All-Time Country Favorites, Country Christmas page.

SANTA'S MOVIN' ON
(As sung by Homer and Jethro)

Y'oughta seen the look on Pa
When he seen Santy Claus a-kissin' Ma.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
That mistletoe has gotta go.
He's a-movin' on.

Y'oughta seen old Santy quiver
When he slapped him in the face with a reindeer liver.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
Poor old Saint Nick was a-lookin' sick.
He's a-movin' on.

Santa Claus looked awful strange
When poor old Rudolph got the mange.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
His nose was red. His fur was dead.
He's a-movin' on.

Old Saint Nick let out a whine
When he set down on a porcupine.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
He stood real still when he felt the quill.
He's a-movin' on.

Santa was a sad old man
When he backed into the electric fan.
He's a-movin' on. He's a-movin' on.
That's all, my friend. This is the end.
He's a-movin' on.
