During the first night of this year's Christmas concerts. "Santa Claus, Santa Claus" includes Bruce, Jimmy Vivino and Max Weinberg 7. Multiple guests ..... The entire E Street Band except Roy Bittan and Steven Van Zandt joins The Max Weinberg 7 as the band. "Something" and "My Sweet Lord" are played by Bruce as a tribute to George Harrison who passed away recently.  "Thundercrack" is next up". "Seaside Bar Song" follows. "Love (Stand Up)" and "Spanish Dancer" are Patti's spotlight. "Welcome To The World" and "New York Skyline" are Garland Jeffreys' contributions. Then Southside gets three slots before Nils Lofgren does the next two. Bruce and Southside share lead on "I Don't Want To Go Home". After "My City Of Ruins", Bobby Bandiera performs a solo acoustic "Here Comes The Sun". Otherwise quite similar to last years show.

Lyrics

Want to climb down your chimney, baby, I want to put a present on your tree
I'm gonna climb down your chimney, baby, I'm gonna put a present on your tree
I want to show the whole world, baby, oh, what you mean-a me

I think about you baby, honey, on ev'ry holiday
Know that I think about you baby, honey on ev'ry holiday
I'd make Christmas come twice a year, darlin'
If I only had my way

(I have mine)

I want to be your Santa Claus, baby, if it's the last thing I'll be
I want to be your Santa Claus, baby, if it's the last thing I'll be
Hang a present on your tree, darlin', show you what you mean-a me

(I hear ya, Jimmy)
