Song Description

Santa's reindeer get sick and can't pull the sleigh, so possums save the day. Southern USA

Story Behind the Song

Children's Christmas song Santa's reindeer get sick and can't pull the sleigh, so possums save the day.

Lyrics

One Christmas eve he won't forget
Old Santa nearly pitched a fit
When Rudolph came down with the flu Well, he got weak and he turned blue Reindeer cried and whinnied
On that rooftop in Virginee
And it looked like Santa Claus was really through

My dad climbed up the ladder
He said "Nick, that just don't matter
I've got some friends with poor eyesight but they can guide your sleigh all right Even if it's snowing
Just point them where you're going
I'll hook you up a passel here tonight"?

Fly possum fly
Lift Ol' Santa to the sky
Get those bags of toys to everyone
Fly possum fly
Nature's clean-up crew on high
You got eight more hours to git it done?

With curly tails and pointed snouts
And fifty teeth in little mouths
They flew on from hill to dale Delivering their special mail

Jacks and Jills and Joeys
Spurred by Santa's ho-ho-ho'ing
With true blue possum hearts
they could not fail?

Fly possum fly
Lift Ol' Santa to the sky
Get those bags of toys to everyone
Fly possum fly
Nature's clean-up crew on high
You got six more hours to git it done
?
From Illinois to Tennessee
From Muscle Shoals to Abilene
They flew all night on stardust tracks With babies on their mother's backs

So now you know the skinny
That right here in Virginee
We saved Christmas eve and that's a fact

Fly possum fly
Lift Ol' Santa to the sky
Get those bags of toys to everyone
Fly possum fly
Nature's clean-up crew on high
You got four more hours to git it done

Fly possum fly
Lift Ol' Santa to the sky
Get those bags of toys to everyone
Fly possum fly
Nature's clean-up crew on high
You got two more hours to git it done
