Lyrics

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

[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 St. 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 its eyes

[Chorus]

Next comes the stocking of little Will
Oh just see what a glorious thrill
Here is a hammer with lots of tacks
Whistle and a ball and a whip that cracks

[Chorus]
