up on the housetop

Verse 1:
Up on the (housetop/rooftop) 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 / nice / old) Saint Nick.

Verse 2:
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.
Repeat chorus

Verse 3:
(Look in / Next comes) the stocking of little (Will/Bill);
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!

Repeat chorus

(Note: It is often customary to snap the fingers along
