Pierce, they're just trying to pander to your demographic's documented historical vanity. Resist!

In "Paradigms of Human Memory", it was revealed that the study group filled in for the Glee Club when the previous members died in a tragic bus accident. When the latest club becomes incapacitated in "Regional Holiday Music," the study group refuses Mr. Radisson's request to replace them once more. Abed becomes his ally however and eventually manages to convince Troy to perform. They show up the next day in the study room, having rearranged the furniture and converting it into a practice area for the pageant. When the rest of the study group arrives, they target Pierce as the next to fall under the Glee spell ...

The song with lyrics[]


Troy and Abed: Santa Claus was born in 1945
He had a boogie-woogie Coca-Cola army jive

Abed: And when the Commies gave the polio to Doris Day,
Santa helped the Beatles chase McCarthy away.
That Baby Boomer Santa
He never gonna die.

Troy: Santa fought at Woodstock and Vietnam
And smoked a ton of acid and burned his bra.
Abed: And then in 1970, he did more drugs
And his hair stayed long and he… grew a mustache

Troy and Abed: Baby Boomer Santa
He’s gonna stay ali-hi-hi-ive.
Troy: Santa invented Spielberg and microchips.
Abed: Santa invented Coca-Cola and aerobics.

Troy: He made the Iron Curtain and the Gremlins too
Fake butter and AIDS and Twin Peaks.

Troy and Abed: Baby Boomer Santa
Thank you for MTV.
Baby Boomer Santa
Thank you for everything.

Pierce: You’re welcome.
You’re welcome for everything
In the world!
You’re welcome
You’re welcome for all that I bring
To the world!
I’m Baby Boomer Santa
I bring the gift of the world!

Baby Boomer Santa
I’m an American pearl!

The lyrics were as Annie described: shameful pandering to Pierce's demographic. Baby boomers of Pierce's generation are usually very proud about their status in history as a special generation which helped to change the world. The song listed various accomplishments of baby boomers in both history and entertainment (although Troy and Abed get a lot of the details wrong). Pierce succumbs easily to the praise and is the third study group member to join. He is instrumental in convincing Shirley to join by using a children's choir to play on her personal vanity regarding her Christian beliefs.
