This work is only the artists (version a) and then my own interpretation of the song
(version b). All copyright to Orla - you can also find the chords and tabs on her Facebook-page.

I will put in two different versions the first is the chord/strumming version without
the little flicks in the start. Orla states that it's capo 4 and
Chorus: C-G-Am-F
Every other part: Am-C-F-G

=================================

I, however, play it a little different. I see her having the capo on 4 on the video
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=14-gjqhKIdA) but simply don't find the sound fitting on my
guitar - for some wierd reason. Yes, I am in standard tuning (EADGBE). So usually I 
would go for "this version" when I play it:

I think this sound pretty accurate:
Capo 3

Where will he get those toys For all them girls and boys What is there for Santa Clause to do Hes feeling helpless now The cause of many a row These hard financial times affect him too The elves had had enough Less than minimum wage is tough So saint nick had sent them on their way With no one to assist, Bills longer than the naughty list (#END OF FINGERSTYLE#)
G F (let ring)How on earth would poor Santa Clause pay
EChildren all over the world, all countries, all races
FWake up demember 25th with disappointed faces
ENone of them with a clue what poor Saint Nick has been through
FUnderneath the Christmas tree is an I.O.U
---Chorus---
C/G GSpare a thought for Santa Clause this year
AmWont hear a ho ho ho exchange rates low low low
FIts pretty hard to spread that Christmas cheer
C/GHes trying to make it better, he goes through all the letters
GMolly wants a dolly and John wants a tank
AmWell thats all good and jolly kids,
Fbut my children there is just no money in the North Pole Bank
