Christmas Song Highlights Difficult Aspects Of Santa’s Job
This song highlights some of the aspects of Santa’s job that are not so fun, like reindeer kicking “buttock in his face,” climbing up and down messy chimneys, outrunning “big guard dogs” and “making a B-line for the bathroom” after eating too many cookies.
“Santa Claus gotta dirty job / Santa Claus gotta dirty job,” they sing in the chorus. “Santa Claus gotta dirty job / and he does it all night long.”
“Merry Christmas, Mike Rowe,” Rich says at the end of the song, to which Rowe responds, “Merry Christmas, John-boy.”
This is a Christmas song that the whole family can enjoy! God bless Mike Rowe for showing us yet another talent of his, just when we thought we’d seen it all.
Is there anything this guy can’t do?!
