Little Skidoo

by Bert Collins

 

A blizzard struck one Christmas Eve, and snowflakes filled the sky,

Old Santa Claus was forced to land, his reindeer couldn't fly ...

He crashed his sleigh into a drift, beside a farmer's shed, He spied a little snowmobile,

and this is what he said:

 

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

You're the only one in all the world can hope to get me thru!

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

I've a million toys for girls and boys, and I don't know what to do …

 

The little snowmobile replied, "I'd help you if I could,"

My tracks are made of rubber and my skis are made of wood.

Well start your motor," Santa said, "And fill your gas tank up,

"We've got to get these toys delivered, 'fore the sun comes up."

 

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

You're the only one in all the world can hope to get me thru!

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

I've a million toys for girls and boys, and I don't know what to do …

 

He unhitched all his reindeer, and he put them in the shed,

He found some straw to keep them warm, and tucked them all to bed.

He dug his toys out from his sleigh -- all covered up with snow,

And with his pack upon his back, he shouted: "Let'er go!"

 

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

You're the only one in all the world can hope to get me thru!

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

I've a million toys for girls and boys, and I don't know what to do …

Across the frozen midnight drifts, through blinding snow and hail,

The little snowmobile skedaddled, through the howling gale,

With frost upon his whiskers, and a smile upon his face, Old Santa filled the stockings up,

at everybody's place!

 

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

You're the only one in all the world can hope to get me thru!

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

I've a million toys for girls and boys, and I don't know what to do …

 

They skied their way down from the north, until the snow was gone,

We're running late, old Santa cried, we must get off the ground!

You know I don't know how to fly, the snowmobile replied,

That's nonsense, said old Santa Claus, you haven't even tried!

 

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

You're the only one in all the world can hope to get me thru!

Little Skidoo ... it's up to you!

I've a million toys for girls and boys, and I don't know what to do …

OK replied the snowmobile, I'll do my best for you ...

He gunned his motor, spun his tracks, and Santa lifted too;

With all their might, they lifted off -- into the midnight blue,

And Santa made his trip in time, Thanks too our brave Skidoo!

 

Little Skidoo, you really flew. When you want to put your mind to it,

There's nothing you can't do!

Little Skidoo, we love you too, and the reindeer were delighted

As they flew past in review!
