LYRICS to THE LEAST NAUGHTY TOT
Don Caron

The least naughty tot
The least naughty tot
Here’s to the least naughty tot
Prospero Año y Felizidad

I know you’re hoping for a Merry Christmas
The season known for everyday accismus
The kids are hard to hold at bay come Christmas
‘Cause they think they are so smart

The geese globally bought
To roast in the pot
Well-mannered or not
Were probably nicer than your child

So stories were writ
The kids to outwit
And make them submit
To being-have and not so wild

The season of many tales and fictions
They’re fabricated to avoid the frictionsRelieve the parents of their worst afflictions
All those kids who won’t be nice

I’m gonna spill all the beans ‘bout Christmas
Naughty nice and that sort business
You can haul in the gifts on Christmas
If you get the right advice

The least naughty tot
Will hit the jackpot
Or so they’ve been taught
Year after year in Christmas lore

The least snotty tot
Stands out from the lot
The one never caught
And that gives them the higher score

So here’s a secret for you kids ‘bout Christmas
No Santa sees into your private business
No naughty-nice list gets checked for Christmas
Just ignore that for a start

‘Cause no one see’s all the stuff you’re doing
There is no access to that sort of viewing
All the mischievous kerfuffle brewing
Is just you doing your part

The least naughty tot
is prob’ly a snot
and not who you thought
So let it go to be forgot

The least naughty tot
The least naughty tot
Here’s to the least naughty tot
Prospero Año y Felicidad

ABOUT THE SOURCE MUSIC

“Feliz Navidad” is a Christmas song written in 1970 by Puerto Rican singer-songwriter José Feliciano. With its simple, heartfelt lyrics—the traditional Spanish Christmas/New Year greeting “Feliz Navidad, próspero año y felicidad” (“Merry Christmas, a prosperous year and happiness”) followed by (in English) “I wanna wish you a Merry Christmas from the bottom of my heart”—has become a Christmas classic and has gained enormous popularity around the world.

Feliciano says he recorded the song while feeling homesick at Christmas, missing his family in New York City and his extended family farther afield as he sat in a studio in Los Angeles. He remembered celebrating Christmas Eve with his brothers, eating traditional Puerto Rican foods, drinking rum, and going caroling. “It was expressing the joy that I felt on Christmas and the fact that I felt very lonely,” he told NPR in December 2020. “I missed my family, I missed Christmas carols with them. I missed the whole Christmas scene.”

Feliciano’s 1970 recording of “Feliz Navidad” (in which he plays both an acoustic guitar and a Puerto Rican cuatro) is one of the most downloaded and aired Christmas songs in the United States and Canada. It was also recognized by ASCAP as one of the top 25 most played and recorded Christmas songs around the world.

The original version of “Feliz Navidad” first charted on any of the US Billboard music charts more than two decades after it was recorded, first on the Adult Contemporary chart on the week ending January 3, 1998 (reaching No. 18), and then on the Radio Songs chart the following week (reaching No. 70). Two years later, on the week ending January 8, 2000, the song re-entered the Billboard Adult Contemporary chart at a new peak of No. 12.
