The Lyrics

(instrumental intro)

There is a house in the Arctic Circle
in the land of Midnight Sun
and it's given coal lumps to many a bad boy
and, God, I know, I'm one.

My mother was a lady.
She sewed my red stocking.
My father said to be a good boy
and see what Santa brings.

Now, the only thing a naughty boy needs
is a target for his tricks.
And the only time he's satisfied
is when he's got his kicks.

(instrumental breaks)

Oh, mothers, tell your children
not to do what I have done
or their Christmas morn will be laden with coal
from the House in the Midnight Sun.

Well, I've got one foot on the Naughty List
the other foot on the Nice.
I'm going up to the Pole in the North
to ask Santa to check his list twice!

Well, there is a house in the Arctic Circle
in the land of Midnight Sun
and it's given coal lumps to many a bad boy
and, God, I know, I'm one!

(instrumental close)

Clever holiday parody! Here's 555 gifts for you! I promise none of them are coal! TRIVIA: A couple of my favorite covers of the OS are a rock version by Frijid Pink and a disco version by HOT R.S.

In the words of the (apparently) immortal Betty White, "How coal WAS it?"
