Up on the housetop reindeer paws, out jumps good ol' Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones, Christmas joy.

Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go,
Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go-o
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.

First comes the stocking of little Will
Oh, just see what a glorious fill
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Also a ball and a whip that cracks

Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go,
Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go-o
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.

Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go,
Ho ho ho, who wouldn't go-o
Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick.

"They say it's your birthday, it's my birthday, too, yeah, I got two presents, that's right,
Dude, I got some jam and I got some wax, two presents for Christmas,
Bitchin, huh? Right, let's go to the beach
