Christmas 2008 in Australia

 It is that time of the year again, when you are thankful for everything merry and bright. May this Christmas be a delight! Wishing you a Merry Christmas.

My 2008 Christmas is in Melbourne, Australia. It’s nothing like being with family members on this Auspicious Days . Eventhough I miss Malaysia, well.. I am very much happier here. I would be back to Malaysia after the beginning of the NEW YEAR 2009.

Mariah Carey – Santa Claus Is Coming To Town-lyrics

Mariah Carey singing Santa Claus Is Coming To Town

lyrics:

You better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why

Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town

He’s making a list
He’s checking it twice
He’s gonna find out
Who’s naughty or nice

Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He knows when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good
So be good for goodness sake

So you better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why

Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town
Santa Claus is comin’ to town

The kids in girl and boyland
Will have a jubilee
They’re gonna build a toyland
All around the Christmas tree

So you better watch out
You better not cry
You better not pout
I’m telling you why

Santa Claus (is comin’ to town)
Santa Claus (is comin’ to town)
Santa Claus is comin’
Santa Claus is comin’
Santa Claus is comin’
To town
