Words & Music: Aaron Schroeder/ Claude DeMetrius
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

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

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 wanna make me happy and fill my heart with joy
Then Santa, hear my plea
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 wanna make me happy and fill my heart with joy
Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me

Then Santa, hear my plea
Santa bring my baby back to me
Recorded: 1957/09/07, first released on Elvis' Christmast album

Love this song, this has to be the #2 all time Christmas song, right behind the #1 XMAS song of ALL TIME Santa Clause is back in town

A superb holiday rocker from the classic Elvis Christmas album of 1957. Could have stood on it's own as a single. Just lots of fun, filled with humor and cheer. Makes me feel good every time I hear it.

Great track, even for Easter. DeMetrius also wrote Mean woman blues and Hard headed woman. This one is more mellow, but still great.

A Christmas version of Teddy Bear in many ways, it has that same bouncy happy go lucky feel to it. Issued as a single in the UK back in 1957, it deservedlly broke into the top 10.

This is such a fabulous and fun Christmas song and it's one of seventeen songs that Elvis recorded that was written by Aaron Schroeder.

Great track! Should be as well known as Blue Christmas, but isn't. The Jordaniares sound great in this too!

Best 3 from the First original Christmas Album: "Santa Bring my Baby Back to me", "Blue Christmas", "Santa Claus is back in town". But then again the whole Album is great. "Santa Bring my baby back to me" should be pushed as a single, maybe in a format like this: Track one-2011 Remix and Overdubbed (new music added) Track Two:Original 1957 version. And, this should only be Elvis, and not a duet release.

I always liked this one much more than Santa Claus Is Back In Town. Great R'n' R/pop ditty.

I think this one is a real classic. I Love "Blue Christmas" but I wish "Santa, Bring my back to me" was just as popular. The two Elvis Christmas songs that get the most airplay at Christmas, are "Blue Christmas" and "Here Comes Santa Claus", in America.

Christmas without a tree, a plump bird(Oh matron!) and Elvis' Christmas album could never be complete. Great song, never get tired of listening to it.

"Santa Claus Is Back In Town" is the "Jailhouse Rock" of Christmas songs and this is the Christmas equivalant to "Treat Me Nice". Softer than SCIBIT; but still outstanding with Elvis and Jords making this one a classic.

Great song and I love the album too. El at his best.

I always loved this song. True 50's Rock N Roll with Elvis even out-Elvising himself. Does not get played enough at Christmas time & should be more well known.
