"Santa Baby" was originally recorded by Eartha Kitt with Henri RenΓ© and his orchestra in New York City on October 6, 1953. It was released by RCA Victor Records as catalog number 20-5502 (in the USA), and by EMI on the His Master's Voice label as catalog number B 10728. The song was a huge hit for Kitt, and she later said that it was one of her favorite songs to record; she reprized it in the 1954 film New Faces. Kitt also reprized the original song in a 1963 re-recording for Kapp Records, with a more uptempo arrangement. (Madonna's popular rendition for the 1987 charity album A Very Special Christmas is based on this latter version.) In 1954, Eartha Kitt recorded a new version of the song with new lyrics titled "This Year's Santa Baby", to no commercial success. Writers listed did not change. The song was featured in the 1989 film Driving Miss Daisy.

New Faces was a musical revue with songs and comedy skits tied together by a quirky plot. It ran on Broadway for nearly a year in 1952 and was then made into a motion picture in 1954. It helped jump start the careers of several young performers including Paul Lynde, Alice Ghostley, Eartha Kitt, Carol Lawrence, performer/writer Mel Brooks (as Melvin Brooks), and lyricist Sheldon Harnick. The film was basically a reproduction of the stage revue with a thin plot added. The plot involved a producer and performer (Ronny Graham) in financial trouble and is trying to stave off an angry creditor long enough to open his show. A wealthy Texan offers to help out, on the condition that his daughter be in the show.

Lyrics       Santa Baby
Santa baby, slip a sable under the tree for me To a platinum mine
Been an awful good girl Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight Santa baby, and fill my stocking with a duplex and checks
Santa baby, an auto space convertible too, light blue Sign your 'x' on the line
I'll wait up for you, dear Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight Come and trim my Christmas tree
Think of all the fun I've missed With some decorations bought at Tiffany
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed I really do believe in you
Next year I could be also good Let's see if you believe in me
If you'll check off my Christmas list Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing, a ring
Santa honey, I want a yacht and really that's not a lot I don't mean on the phone
Been an angel all year Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa baby, and hurry down the chimney tonight Hurry down the chimney tonight
Santa cutie, there's one thing I really do need, the deed Hurry, tonight
Songwriters: Joan Javits / Philip Springer / Tony Springer
