Up on the Housetop

Traditional

Tune:  "Traditional"

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' Yuletide joys

Chorus:

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 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 can open and shut its eyes

Look in the stocking of little Bill
Oh, just see that glorius fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Whistle and ball and a set of Jacks
