Song: Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot, The

Written by Michael Carr, Tommy Connor, Jimmy Leach

Vocalist Natalie Cole’s jazzy rendition of “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot” was one of the highlights of her 1994 Elektra holiday album entitled Holly And Ivy. “The Little Boy That Santa Claus Forgot,” written by Michael Carr, Tommy Connor and Jimmy Leach, was first published in the mid-1930s. The song was also recorded by singer/pianist Nat “King” Cole, Natalie’s father, in 1960. This holiday favorite tells the sad tale of a small boy whose only wish is to be part of a family at Christmas.
