Up on the Housetop
Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down thru 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 thru 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 will open and shut her eyes

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?


Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?
Upon on the housetop, click, click, click
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick

Look in the stocking of little Will


Oh, just see what a glorious fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Whistle and ball and a whip that cracks

Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?


Ho, ho, ho! Who wouldn't go?
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick
Here Comes Santa Claus

Here comes Santa Claus!


Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
Vixen and Blitzen and all his reindeer
Are pulling on the reins.
Bells are ringing, children singing;
All is merry and bright.
Hang your stockings and say your prayers,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight.

Here comes Santa Claus!


Here comes Santa Claus!
Right down Santa Claus Lane!
He's got a bag that is filled with toys
For the boys and girls again.
Hear those sleigh bells jingle jangle,
What a beautiful sight.
Jump in bed, cover up your head,
'Cause Santa Claus comes tonight
There’s a Hole in My Stocking
Sung to: There’s a Hole in My Bucket

There’s a hole in my stocking, dear Santa, dear Santa.


There’s a hole in my stocking, dear Santa, a hole.

Then fix it, dear Billy, dear Billy, dear Billy.


Then fix it, dear Billy, dear Billy, fix it!

With what should I fix it, dear Santa, dear Santa?


With what should I fix it, dear Santa, with what?

With bubble gum, dear Billy, dear Billy, dear Billy.


With bubble gum, dear Billy, just fix it with gum!

I just lost my front teeth, dear Santa, dear Santa,


So I cannot chew it, dear Santa, not me.

Use an air pump, dear Billy, dear Billy, dear Billy,


To blow up the bubble gum, dear Billy, a pump.

The pump’s in the cellar, dear Santa, dear Santa.


The pump’s in the cellar, the cellar downstairs.

Then go to the cellar, dear Billy, dear Billy.


Then go to the cellar – go downstairs right now!

But it’s cold in the cellar, dear Santa, dear Santa.


It’s cold in the cellar, dear Santa, so cold.

Then put on some stockings, dear Billy, dear Billy.


Then put on some stockings, some stockings,
dear Bill.

But there’s a hole in my stocking, dear Santa, dear Santa.


There’s a hole in my stocking, dear Santa, a hole!

I’m Gettin'
Gettin' Nuttin'
Nuttin' For Christmas
I broke my bat on Johnny's head.
Somebody snitched on me.
I hid a frog in sister's bed.
Somebody snitched on me.

I spilled some ink on Mommy's rug.


I made Tommy eat a bug.
Bought some gum with a penny slug.
Somebody snitched on me.

CHORUS
I’m gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I’m gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but BAD!

(Continued on Next Page)


I put a tack on teacher's chair.
Somebody snitched on me.
I tied a knot in Susie's hair.
Somebody snitched on me.
I did a dance on Mommy's
plants,
Climbed a tree and tore my
pants,
Filled the sugar bowl with ants.
Somebody snitched on me.

CHORUS
I’m gettin' nuttin' for Christmas.
Mommy and Daddy are mad.
I’m gettin' nuttin' for Christmas,
'Cause I ain't been nuttin' but
BAD!
I won't be seeing Santa Claus.
Somebody snitched on me.
He won't come to visit me
Because somebody snitched on
me.
Next year I'll be going straight!
Next year I'll be good.....just
wait!!
I'd start now but it's too late!
Somebody snitched on me.

CHORUS
We Wish You A Merry Christmas

-
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Good tidings we bring to you and your kin,


Good tidings for Christmas and a Happy New Year.

Oh, bring us some figgy pudding,


Oh, bring us some figgy pudding,
Oh, bring us some figgy pudding and a cup of good cheer.

Refrain

We won't go till we get some,


We won't go till we get some,
We won't go till we get some, so bring some out here.

Refrain

We wish you a Merry Christmas,


We wish you a Merry Christmas,
We wish you a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.
Up on the Housetop
Sung to: Up on the Housetop

Up on the housetop, what’s that sound?


Sounds like reindeer prancing ‘round.
Everyone else here is tucked in bed.
In their excitement, I’ve not been fed.
Woof, woof, woof!
Get off the roof!
Woof, woof, woof!
Get off the roof!
Hey! They left cookies
Yum, yum, yum!
I’m going over to get me some!

I turn around as I lick my paws –


Find that I’m staring at Santa Claus
He meets my smile with a knowing look
Then puts my name in his “naughty book.”
Bow, wow, wow!
Who’s sorry now?
Bow, wow, wow!
No presents now.
He’s up the chimney just like that!
Guess in the morning, I’ll blame the cat!
Take Me Out to See Santa
Sung to: Take Me Out to the Ball Game

Take me out to see Santa!


Take me out to the mall!

Want to make sure that there’s nothing I missed,
So let’s rush, rush, rush to go see him.
Please, let’s be first in line!
‘Cause just 10—9—8 days remain
Till it’s Christmastime!

Santa, Santa that’s what I say,


Give me toys on Christmas Day.
Christmas wreaths and Christmas trees,
Christmas presents pretty please.
Thank you, thank you, I will say,
Don’t make me do chores today.
Leave me candy, leave me clothes,
But don’t forget which house mine goes.
Big toys, little toys, good or bad.
If you don’t leave them, I’ll be sad.
Kids love Christmas, it is true,
If you don’t come they’ll all be blue!

I've Been Waiting Here for Christmas

Reindeer up so high.
Can't you hear the children singing
As they watch the sky?

Santa hurry up, Santa hurry up,


Santa hurry up today-ay-ay.
Santa hurry up, Santa hurry up,
Santa hurry up today.

Waiting's oh so slow!

Jingle Bells
Dashing through the snow
In a one-
one-horse open sleigh,
Over the fields we go,
Laughing all the way;
Bells on bob-
bob-tail ring,
making spirits bright,
What fun it is to ride and sing
A sleighing song tonight
Oh, Jingle bells, jingle bells,
jingle all the way!
Oh what fun it is to ride
In a one-
one-horse open sleigh.
FROSTY THE SNOW MAN
Frosty the Snowman
Was a jolly, happy soul
With a corncob pipe and a button nose
And two eyes made out of coal

Frosty the Snowman


Is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow, but the children know
How he came to life one day

There must have been some magic


In that old silk hat they found
For when they placed it on his head
He began to dance around!

O Frosty the Snowman


Was alive as he could be
And the children say he could laugh and play
Just the same as you and me
Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow
Frosty the Snowman
Is a fairy tale they say
He was made of snow, but the children know
How he came to life one day

Frosty the Snowman


Knew the sun was hot that day
So he said "Let's run and we'll have some fun now
Before I melt away."

Down to the village


With a broomstick in his hand
Running here and there all around the square
Saying "Catch me if you can!"

He led them down the streets of town


Right to the traffic cop
And he only paused a moment when
He heard him holler "Stop!"

For Frosty the Snowman


Had to hurry on his way
But he waved goodbye saying "Don't you cry,
I'll be back again some day."

Thumpetty thump thump


Thumpety thump thump
Look at Frosty go
Thumpetty thump thump
Thumpety thump thump
Over the hills of snow
