Reminds me of the old Christmas classic, "(Mamacita) Donde esta Santa Claus" by Little Augie Rios from 1959.

What's a year or so between friends?

Well, 1958 was also the year of the Chipmunks, right?

Yes, and I remember it well. I even have a very clear memory of Dick Clark playing it for the "Rate a Record" segment of Bandstand. The raters all hated it, but Clark told them it would be a big hit.
