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

    Santas busy day. Kids are hoping to get there presents and try to sleep so santa will come. If ur not sleepin he wont come. So they hear him on the rooftop and after he is done they go look at their presents. So this is about santa and his day. If u could spend a day with santa would you go?
