The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot — Nat King Cole

The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot — Nat King Cole

He’s the little boy that Santa Claus forgot
And goodness knows, he didn’t want a lot

He sent a note to Santa
For some soldiers and a drum
It broke his little heart
When he found Santa hadn’t come

In the street he envies all those lucky boys
Then wanders home to last year’s broken toys
I’m so sorry for that laddie
He hasn’t got a daddy
The little boy that Santa Claus forgot

You know, Christmas comes
But once a year for every girl and boy
The laughter and the joy they find in each brand new toy
I’ll tell you of a little boy that lives across the way
This little fella’s Christmas is just another day
He’s the little boy that Santa Claus forgot
And goodness knows, he didn’t want a lot

In the street he envies all those lucky boys
Then wanders home to last year’s broken toys
I’m so sorry for that laddie
He hasn’t got a daddy
The little boy that Santa Claus forgot
