Story Behind The Song
I AM the man in Brown-- for 30 years now, and have delivered my share of Santa's presents, so I know of what I sing about!
Entertaining, humorous song about the reality of who Santa's helpers are.

Santa Drives a Big Brown Truck
When I was boy maybe six years old
My daddy told ?bout some things a man needs to know
Like how to shop for presents when Christmas time comes around.
He said: ?Son place the order, then watch for the man in brown.?
Santa drives a big brown truck.
He?s always on time and never givin? up.
He?ll always be there to answer the call
And keep you away from the shopping mall.
I believe in Santa. I believe in Santa.
I believe in Santa ?cause Santa drives a big brown truck.
(Little boy speaking: ?But Daddy, doesn?t Santa drive a sleigh with
eight tiny reindeer? And Daddy, I thought Santa had a long white beard and
wore a bright red suit. And doesn?t Santa deliver the presents on Christmas Eve?
That?s what Mama always told me.?)
Some say he flies with reindeer and sleigh
Delivering the presents for Christmas day.
But let me tell you son ?cause I know that it?s true
It wouldn?t be Christmas without Brown too.
Now that I?m grown I?ve got a boy of my own
I?m telling him the stories like my daddy once told.
Like how to shop for presents when Christmas time comes around
And I mean what I say ?cause I am the man in brown.
(Doorbell rings. Little boy says: ?It?s Santa Claus, it?s Santa Claus!?)
