Santa Clause is Coming to Town

by The Jackson 5

Funny Jackson 5-related aside: When Monkey was a baby, his favourite of the songs I sang to him was this song by the Jackson 5:

One time my parents picked Monkey and I up to drive us to their place, an hour away. Monkey was fussy that day, so I sang this song to him over and over and over again to keep him happy until my voice just about gave out. My parents were surprised that I knew all the words. They were also amused by how much the baby loved the song. Every time I stopped singing, he'd start crying. It's questionable which was more annoying for my dad, who was trying to drive the car - my singing or his crying.
