Up on the House Top. “ 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. ” (Submitted on July 13, 2008.)
