Santa Claus is Coming Online

Santa Claus is Coming Online
(sung to the tune of Santa Claus is Coming To Town by John Frederick Coots and Haven Gillespie)

You’d better boot up
You’d better log on
Type in your password before he’s gone
Santa Claus is coming online

He’s surfing the net
He’s downloading posts
He doesn’t like flames and he doesn’t like toasts
Santa Claus is coming online

He’s filling in his spreadsheet
He’s got data entry elves
They’re unzipping all the archives
So you’d better behave yourselves

The reindeer downsized
Blitzen retired
The sleigh’s pretty light since the Pole got wired

Santa Claus is coming online
Cyber Claus is coming online
Santa Claus is coming…online!

I wrote this years ago…possibly decades. ūüôā I’m actually surprised by how much of it still makes sense when tech changes so rapidly. I had to check, but I don’t think I’ve published this in The Measured Circle before.
