Story Behind The Song

Lyrics

DEAR MRS. CLAUS (DEATON, NORRIS, DEATON)

DEAR MRS. CLAUS, I'M WRITIN' YOU A LETTER
I HOPE IT BEATS THE WEATHER
THE FORCAST IS SNOW
DEAR MRS. CLAUS, I REALLY GOTTA TELL YA
THAT SANTA'S A GOOD FELLA
BUT HE'S STEALIN THE SHOW

OH HE GET'S BAGS AND BAGS OF LETTERS UP AND DOWN THE HALL
EVERY YEAR THEY'RE STACKED UP A MILE TALL
WHILE HE GETS ALL THE CREDIT YOU GET NOTHING AT ALL
I CAN'T BELIEVE NOBODY'S PUT YOUR NAME IN A SONG

DEAR MRS. CLAUS, YOU'RE SO DESERVING OF ATTENTION
OH AND DID I MENTION, WE'RE COUNTING ON YOU, TOO
DEAR MRS. CLAUS, I KNOW YOU HOLD IT ALL TOGETHER
LIKE TWO BIRDS OF A FEATHER
WHAT WOULD HE DO WITHOUT YOU

BEHIND EVERY GOOD MAN THERE'S A GOOD WOMAN
SO KEEP DOIN' WHAT YOU'RE DOIN' EVEN WHEN IT SEEMS LIKE NOBODY'S LOOKIN', CAUSE I AM

OH HE GET'S BAGS AND BAGS OF LETTERS UP AND DOWN THE HALL
EVERY YEAR THEY'RE STACKED UP A MILE TALL
WHILE HE GETS ALL THE CREDIT YOU GET NOTHING AT ALL
I CAN'T BELIEVE NOBODY'S PUT YOUR NAME IN A SONG

DEAR MRS. CLAUS, I'M WRITIN' YOU A LETTER
I HOPE IT BEATS THE WEATHER
DEAR MRS. CLAUS

DEAR MRS., DEAR MRS., DEAR MRS., DEAR MRS. CLAUS
