Eartha Kitt - Good bye Santa Baby

old vinyl disc cover

What if you would know when you will die ? Let's say that you are a singer and you have a great hit called 'Santa Baby'. Soon after you have collected the awards, the applauses and the money, you find out that you will die on the Christmas day. Isn't this weird ?
How will be to sing every year for hundreds of times the song about the day when you will die ?! Is true that in the case of Eartha Kitt it wasn't so, but still is a fantastic coincidence. This year Santa came with surprises to Kitt. Santa had a hidden hatchet in his bag.
Probably Santa came each year with a bag full of surprises to Eartha, but this year he had enough. Or maybe he sent her in a better place...
Don't you feel a bitter taste after reading these nice lyrics of 'Santa Baby' and knowing that Eartha Kitt died on the Christmas Day?! (scroll down to watch an old video recording with this song)

Santa Baby, slip a sable under the tree, For me.
been an awful good girl, Santa baby,
so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa baby, a 54 convertible too,
Light blue.
I'll wait up for you dear,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Think of all the fun I've missed,
Think of all the fellas that I haven't kissed,
Next year I could be just as good,
If you'll check off my Christmas list,

Santa baby, I wanna yacht,
And really that's not a lot,
Been an angel all year,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa honey, there's one thing I really do need,
The deed
To a platinum mine,
Santa honey, so hurry down the chimney tonight.

Santa cutie, and fill my stocking with a duplex,
And checks.
Sign your 'X' on the line,
Santa cutie, and hurry down the chimney tonight.

Come and trim my Christmas tree,
With some decorations bought at Tiffany's,
I really do believe in you,
Let's see if you believe in me,

Santa baby, forgot to mention one little thing,
A ring.
I don't mean on the phone,
Santa baby, so hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry down the chimney tonight,
Hurry, tonight.
