On October 12 1987, Madonna contributed Santa Baby (a remake of the 1953 Eartha Kitt song) to the first in a series of  A Very Special Christmas Christmas-themed compilation albums produced to benefit Special Olympics.

The cover artwork was designed by Keith Haring.

Lyrics:

Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree, for me
I’ve been an awful good girl
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonightSanta baby, an out-of-space convertible too, light blue
I’ll wait up for you dear
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonightThink of all the fun I’ve missed
Think of all the fellas that I haven’t kissed
Next year I could be oh so good
If you’d check off my Christmas list
Boo doo bee dooSanta honey, I wanna yacht and really that’s
Not a lot
I’ve been an angel all year
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa cutie, there’s one thing I really do need, the deed
To a platinum mine
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Santa baby, I’m filling my stocking with a duplex, and checks
Sign your ‘X’ on the line
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Come and trim my Christmas tree
With some decorations bought at Tiffany’s
I really do believe in you
Let’s see if you believe in me
Boo doo bee doo

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
I don’t mean a phone
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight

Hurry down the chimney tonight
Hurry down the chimney tonight

  1. Reminds me of I’m Breathless-a period piece! Or maybe when the time is right again, Madonna will do an Xmas cover of Steve Earle’s Nothing but a Child. Or maybe Christmas reminds her too much of her mother or Guy Ritchie. The mind reels..
