"Santa Claus is Comin' to Town" is a popular Christmas song written by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie with its earliest performances dating back to 1934. Frank Sinatra did a cover version in 1948, which is featured in the film The Polar Express and as the eighth track on its official soundtrack. The elves, children and Conductor sing the first verse right before Santa Claus shows up at the North Pole Square, then Frank Sinatra's cover starts plays over the loudspeakers as everyone cheers for Santa. It is heard up until Hero Boy gets ahold of the silver bell that fell off the reindeer's harness.

Lyrics

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town
He's making a list, checking it twice
He's gonna find out who's naughty or nice
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
Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town
(instrumental break)
Say, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town
He's making a list and he's checking it twice
He's gonna find out who's been naughty or nice
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
Oh, you better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I'm telling you why
Santa Claus is comin' to town
