Kelly Clarkson and Ariana Grande first joined forces as Coaches on The Voice Season 21. And they worked so well together that they decided to keep their synergy going with a holiday song called "Santa Can't You Hear Me." 

How to Watch

Watch The Voice on NBC and Peacock. 

The track is from Clarkson's 2021 album, When Christmas Comes Around... At the time, Clarkson said about the project, "When Christmas Comes Around… captures how different the holidays can be for all of us during the varying stages of our lives, and I hope everyone can find something on the record they relate to. Hopefully the happier songs, but if not, hey… you’re not alone!"

"Santa Can't You Hear Me" is definitely an example of one of the happier songs on the album. Read the lyrics and listen for yourself, below: 

Keep the snow and sleigh rides
Keep those silver bells
Keep the gifts beneath the tree
Give them to someone else
Keep that magic snowman
Keep those twinkly lights
Keep the reindeer
My heart already knows how to fly (mm)

'Cause all I ever wanted
Was nothing I got and
Santa, can't you hear me?
Oh-oh, oh, oh-oh, oh

I don't need a thing
I sent a letter to you
On how to make my dreams come true, yeah, yeah
What I want for Christmas
Hasn't come and I've been so blue
Tell me, what can I do? Oh yeah
Keep the mistletoe (keep the mistletoe)
Unless below is what I need (what I need)
Santa, can't you hear me?

Keep those bows and boxes (keep them bows and them boxes)
Keep those three wise men
No need for a North star
To show me where I will end

'Cause all I ever wanted
Isn't on a shelf and
Santa, can't you hear me?
Oh-oh, oh, oh-oh, oh (ooh yeah, ooh)

I don't need a thing
I sent a letter to you
On how to make my dreams come true, oh, whoa
What I want for Christmas
Hasn't come and I've been so blue
Tell me what can I do? Oh yeah
Keep the mistletoe (keep the mistletoe)
Unless below is what I need
Oh Santa, can't you hear me?

'Cause all I ever wanted
Was nothing I got and
Santa, can't you hear me?
There's one thing that I need
Oh-oh, oh, oh, oh, oh, ooh yeah, oh, oh, oh, oh (Santa, baby)

I don't need a thing
I sent a letter to you (you)
On how to make my dreams come true, oh, whoa
What I want for Christmas
Hasn't come and I've been so blue
Tell me what can I do? Oh yeah
Keep the mistletoe
Unless below is what I need, oh
Oh Santa, can't you hear me?
