Santa Bring My Baby Back
Elvis Presley Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

(Santa bring my baby back to me)
(Santa bring my baby back to me)

I don't need a lot of presents
To make my Christmas bright
I just need my baby's arms
Wound around me tight
Oh oh Santa hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)

The Christmas tree is ready
The candles all aglow
But with my baby far away
What good is mistletoe
Oh oh Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)

Please make these reindeer hurry
Well their time is drawing near
It sure won't seem like Christmas
Until my baby's here

Fill my sock with candy
And a bright and shiny toy
You want to make me happy
And fill my heart with joy
Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)

Please make these reindeer hurry
Well their time is drawing near
It sure won't seem like Christmas
Until my baby's here

Fill my sock with candy
And a bright and shiny toy
You want to make me happy
And fill my heart with joy
Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
(Santa bring my baby back to me)
(Santa bring my baby back)





Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me

Overall Meaning

Elvis Presley's song "Santa Bring My Baby Back" is a plea to Santa Claus to bring the singer's lover back to them for Christmas. The song is about the idea that presents aren't as important as having someone you love with you during the holidays. The singer is saying that all they want for Christmas is to have their lover's arms around them, and that without them, the holiday feels incomplete. The song's repetitive nature and simple lyrics reinforce the idea that the singer's only desire is to be with their beloved.


The song's use of Santa Claus is interesting because he is traditionally associated with bringing gifts, not people. The idea of Santa bringing someone back seems unrealistic, but it underscores the importance of love and togetherness during the holiday season. The song also features references to traditional Christmas decorations like mistletoe and stockings, which helps to place the listener in a festive mood. The singer's sense of longing and desire for their lover is palpable, making the song relatable to anyone who has ever been separated from someone they care about during the holidays.


Overall, Elvis Presley's "Santa Bring My Baby Back" is a romantic and heartfelt plea for the return of a lover during the holiday season. The song's simple premise and universal themes make it a timeless classic that still resonates with listeners today.

Unique style for a 50s Elvis Christmas song. Perfect! ❤️

@elisabethvalade9866

During the 50s, stuff CHANGED!!! Music, clothes, cars, dance, and the advent of a TV in many homes in 1952. (Not before that, as there weren't many stations to broadcast the signals.) OH, you shoulda' been there!!!
