The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot

"The Little Boy that Santa Claus Forgot" is a 1937 song written by Michael Carr, Tommie Connor and Jimmy Leach; most notably performed by Vera Lynn. Other people who have recorded it include Johnny Adams, Billy Mackenzie, Elsie Carlisle, Nat King Cole, Natalie Cole, Billy Cotton, John Farnham, and Alex Harvey.

What a sad song! How appropriate for war-time.

In the street he envied all those lucky boys
Then wandered 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

I guess that's why they used it at the beginning of Pink Floyd's "The Wall".

Here's a way you can help military families in need. Winter is on us and it's going to be a cold one.

It's a dreary rainy afternoon in December and now I'm down.
