No Chimney He Can't Climb (Simani) video

Christmas wouldn't be the same
as Christmases of old,
If old Saint Nick and all his reindeer
stayed up at the pole;
And look at all the love and laughter
we would be without,
Well, isn't that what Christmases
should be all about?

Santa ain't old-fashioned,
he's as real as he can be,
Don't be fooled by his white beard,
he hasn't aged a day;
He knows everybody's business,
including yours and mine,
And there's never been a chimney
old Santa Claus can't climb.

Joy sent down from heaven
by a baby in a crib,
Peace to spread around the world
with gifts of love to give;
Oh, God he needed someone
to get to me and you,
So he gave the job of Christmastime
for Santa Claus to do.

Oh, Santa ain't old-fashioned,
he's as real as he can be,
Don't be fooled by his white beard,
he hasn't aged a day;
He knows everybody's business,
including yours and mine,
And there's never been a chimney
old Santa Claus can't climb.

This world it has so many things
that you and I can't see,
We hope will help him guide
and send the courage to believe;
When we give our gifts at Christmastime
take a moment to recall,
That faith and hope and charity
old Santa has them all.

Santa ain't old-fashioned,
he's as real as he can be,
Don't be fooled by his white beard,
he hasn't aged a day;
He knows everybody's business,
including yours and mine,
And there's never been a chimney
old Santa Claus can't climb.
There's never been a chimney
old Santa Claus can't climb.

From the Century Dictionary Online (one of the largest and most highly regarded encyclopedic dictionaries of the English language) we learn that Chimbley, Chimlay, Chimley and Chimlie are all dialectal forms of chimney.
