Song Description

Country Christmas song about kids who played Mr. and Mrs. Santa growing up to get married. They use their red wagon as a sleigh a their dog Rover as a reindeer, and kiss under the mistletoe. When they grow up he proposes to her under the Christmas tree and they use his new red truck for their sleigh, with Rover riding between them.

Story Behind the Song

I wrote this song to celebrate the joy of Christmas with


When school let out in December, we got to play ev'ry day in the snow
We'd make snowman elves at Santa's village, pretend it was the North Pole
I'd put on my Santa hat, you wore an apron at your play stove
I'd say "Ho Ho Ho," you'd laugh and smile at me, then we'd kiss under the mistletoe

I'd be your Santa and you'd be my Missus Claus
We used my new red wagon to be our sleigh
My dog Rover was our reindeer, with his big old furry paws
We'd bring gifts to all our friends on Christmas Day

We both were sad when we found out you had to move away
Rover and I were lonely ev'ry single day
In December I'd still wear my Santa hat, but I missed you by my side
Wishin' you'd come back and some day be my bride

I was still your Santa but I missed my Missus Claus
Ev'ry year my wagon got smaller as my sleigh
Rover was still my reindeer, with his big old furry paws
All I wanted was to be with you on Christmas Day

One December when we'd both gown up, my wishes finally came true
I looked up, and standing there was you
You were prettier then ever, I want'd to kiss you but you said 'no"--
You said we got to wait 'til we're under the mistletoe

I knew that I was in love with you, so I got down on one knee
Asked for your hand in marriage, right there under the Christmas tree

I said
"Ill be your Santa if you'll be my Missus Claus
I got a new red truck just watin' to be our sleigh
Old Rover these days rides shotgun, curled up on his furry paws
Let's get married on Christmas Day"

And you said
"If you'll be my Santa I'd love to be your Missus Claus
We'll use your new red truck to be our sleigh
Rover can ride between us, curled up on his big old paws
Let's get married on Christmas Day!"
