“Santa Claus Got Stuck In My Chimney” – the Unholy Grail of Christmas Carols

Why, why, why does this exist?  Why would Ella Fitzgerald, the “First Lady of Song,” the “Queen of Jazz,” why, I ask you all, why would “Lady Ella” record such a song?

Santa Claus got stuck in my chimney,
Stuck in my chimney, stuck in the chimney
Santa Claus got stuck in my chimney
When he came last year

There he was in middle of the chimney
Roly-poly, fat and round
There he was in middle of the chimney
Not quite up and not quite down

Santa please come back to my chimney
Back to my chimney, back
Santa please come back to my chimney
You can come back here.
Cause baby, made a brand new chimney
Just for you this year!
Santa, come on back!

Are you kidding me?  That’s the least subtle innuendo I’ve ever heard!  It’s no wonder this song doesn’t get much rotation around Christmas time.  I’m still baffled it exists… maybe someday I’ll be able to get my head around “Santa Claus got stuck in my chimney” and analyze it properly, but for now…  sheesh!
