SANTA CLAUS DROVE A SEMI. Text: "Santa Claus drove a semi. I mean, nobody in Chicago had a fireplace back then, just gas heaters, and he'd go door-to-door wearing a black hat and overcoat asking folks what they needed out of the truck for us kids. I know because I'd see him way at the bottom of the hall stairs talking with my parents at the front door. Nowadays I think this pretty much explains this job I wound up with."
