Up on the housetop reindeer pause
Out jumps good ol’ Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All for the little ones’ Christmas joys

Ho ho ho, who wouldn’t go

Up on the housetop, click, click, click
Down through 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 can open and shut its eyes

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 Saint Nick

Look in the stocking of little 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

Up on the housetop, click, click, click

No “Best Christmas Songs” list would be complete without the all-time classic: Jingle Bells.

Jingle bells lyrics

Dashing through the snow
In a one-horse open sleigh
O’er the fields we go
Laughing all the way.

Bells on bob-tails 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-horse open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way
Oh, what fun it is to ride,
In a one-horse open sleigh.

Now the ground is white
Go it while you’re young
Take the girls tonight
Sing this sleighing song.

Get a bobtailed bay
Two forty for his speed
And hitch him to an open sleigh
And you will take the lead.

Oh, jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way
Oh! what fun it is to ride
In a one-horse open sleigh, hey!

Jingle bells, jingle bells,
Jingle all the way.
Oh! what fun it is to ride,
In a one-horse open sleigh,
Oh, what fun it is to ride
In one-horse open sleigh!
