Looking for Christmas Song, Santa with a .45, or Santa Mugged

About 36 or 37 years ago, at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, I recall hearing a Christmas song over the radio. I would like to find it again.

It was a rendition of Santa Clause is Coming to Town, but with a significant twist.  In the story line, Santa is mugged, and when he comes back, he comes prepared.

As I recall, Santa comes to town armed with a .45.

There are plays on "He knows who has been naughty and nice".

I recall a memorable line about the reindeer.  Something like trample, trample, trample.

I do not know if the song had much of a shelf life. I only heard it the one year, around 1981.

Someone out there knows of it, and has a copy, or knows where to get one.

I would appreciate finding a copy online, or failing that, some way to make an audio file and post it online.

Father Christmas by the Kinks?

No, that is not it.

It is sung to the tune of "Here Comes Santa Clause"

Thought about it some more. It is sung to "The night before Christmas".
