Video Version


Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus.
Down through the chimney, with lots of toys,
All for the little ones' Christmas joys.

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go.
Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn’t go,
Up on the housetop, click, click, click;
Down through the chimney with good old Saint Nick.

First comes the stocking of little Nell;
Oh, dear Santa fill it well!
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries;
One that will open and shut her eyes.


Next comes the stocking of little Will;
Oh just see what a glorious fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks;
A whistle and a ball and a whip that cracks!
