HISTORY LESSON! “Up on the Housetop” was written by Benjamin Hanby in 1864. Get this… not only is it considered the second-oldest secular Christmas song, outdone only by “Jingle Bells” ( Wikipedia), but it was also written in Ohio! In fact, Benjamin Hanby lived about 10 minutes away from where I live now when he wrote the song. So that was cool to learn! I hope you dig my rendition. Happy Holidays, friends!

p.s. You find all the vocals with and without effects in the zip. I also included a couple sound effects for the fun of it.

LYRICS
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;
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries,
One that will open and shut her eyes

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.

Next 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!
Up on the housetop, click, click, click.
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick.

Ma, pa, and Uncle, and Grandma too,
All I declare have something new;
Even the baby enjoys his part,
Shaking a rattle, now bless his heart.

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.

Rover come here, are you all alone,
Haven’t they tossed you an extra bone?
Here’s one to gladden your honest jaws
Now waga “thank’ee” to Santa Claus.

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.
