8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Up on the housetop reindeer pause, Out jumps good old Santa Claus.
Down through the chimney with lots of toys, All for the little ones' Christmas joys.
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.
Look in the stocking of little Bill, Oh, just see that glorious fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks, Whistle and a ball and a set of jacks!
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.
Arranged by Jim Bottorff
