"What Better Way to Tell You" is a song featured in the 1970 Rankin/Bass Christmas television special Santa Claus is Comin' to Town. It is the musical piece that accompanies Kris and Jessica Claus' wedding ceremony.

The song was cut from the syndicated print of the special aired on Viacom-owned stations in the 1980s.


What better way to tell you
How much you mean to me
Than a token of affection
Placed beneath a Christmas tree

The custom started long, long ago (The custom started long ago)
When first the Wise Men three (When first the Wise Men three)
Gave gifts of love
Of lo-o-ove
To a newborn ba-a-by
