"The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot" is the Christmas song performed by Nat 'King' Cole.


He's the little boy
that Santa Claus forgot
And goodness knows
He didn't want a lot

He sent a note to Santa
For some soldiers and a drum
It broke his little heart
When he found Santa hadn't come

In the street he envies all those lucky boys
Then wanders home to last year's broken toys
I'm so sorry for that laddie
He hasn't got a daddy
The little boy that Santa Claus forgot

You know, Christmas comes
but once a year for every girl and boy
The laughter and the joy they
find in each brand new toy

I'll tell you of a little boy
that lives across the way...
This little fella's Christmas
is just another day

[Repeat the first stanza and the chorus]
