The song describes a scene where a child walks downstairs from their bedroom on Christmas Eve to see their mother kissing “Santa Claus” (presumably their father in a Santa Claus costume) under the mistletoe.

I saw Mommy kissing Santa Claus | Christmas Carols - lyrics video for karaoke



I saw mommy kissing Santa Claus
Underneath the mistletoe last night.
She didn’t see me creep
Down the stairs to have a peep;
She thought that I was tucked up
In my bedroom fast asleep.

Then I saw mommy tickle Santa Claus
Underneath his beard so snowy white;
Oh, what a laugh it would have been
If Daddy had only seen
Mommy kissing Santa Claus last night.
