"Up on the House-Top"

       
  1. Up on the house-top the reindeer pause,
Out jumps good old Santa Clause;
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 house-top, click, click, click,
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.
 
 
2.
First comes the stocking of little Neil,
Oh dear Santa, fill it well;
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries,
One that will open and shut her eyes.
 
    Chorus  
  3. Look in the stocking of little Bill,
Oh, just see what a glorious fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks,
Whistle and a ball and a whip that cracks!
 
    Chorus
