Song Lyrics

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: You've got such a long way to go

Wiggles Go Santa Go

Greg Go, go, go, go.

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Call the reindeer

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Get ready

(Other Wiggles: Go, Go!) Greg: And away you go.

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: Go, go, go, Go Santa Go.

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: All the way from the North Pole.

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: Go, go, go, go.

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Through the jungle,

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Through the desert,

(Other Wiggles: Go, Go!) Greg: Through the winter snow.

Go Santa Go

Go, go, go, Go Santa Go.

Greg: Long white beard with a face so happy and cheerful.

Santa Claus: Come on, Rudolph, fast as you can,

We got presents here for everyone in the land.

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: You've got such a long way to go

Wiggles Go Santa Go

Greg Go, go, go, go.

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Call the reindeer

(Other Wiggles: Go!) Greg: Get ready

(Other Wiggles: Go, Go!) Greg: And away you go.

Wiggles: Go Santa Go

Greg: Go, go, go, Go Santa Go.

Trivia

  • The Wiggles have been performing this song on Carols in the Domain since 1996 when the album came out. It was also when Dorothy had green Christmas tinsels on her wrists and ankles and gold tinsel on her hat while dressing up as an acrobat.
  • In the 2013 version, the brass section is omitted so the guitars and keyboards can be heard better. Sleigh bells and extra guitars are also added.
