Backdoor Santa

They call me Backdoor Santa,
I make my rounds about the break of day,
I make a lot of little girls happy,
While the boys are out to play.

I ain't like ol' Saint Nick,
He don't come but once a year,
I come running around with my presents,
Every time you call me near.

I keep some change in my pocket,
In case the children are home,
I give them a few pennies so that we can be alone,
I keep the back door open,
So if anyone smells a mouse,
At the earliest sign of trouble,
There's no children in the house,
They call me Backdoor Santa,
I make my rounds about the break of day.
