I am looking for the music/words to a song called Pancho Claus. I first heard it around 1957. Can anyone help?
I’ve read on Mark Guerrero’s site that his father, Lalo Guerrero, wrote Pancho Claus in the 1940’s as a parody of the poem “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas.” Perhaps emailing Mark would be a good place to start looking into this song.
If anyone can help further, please comment below. (I’d also be curious to learn more about the character of Pancho Claus, or is he just a parody too?)
