Christmas Songs

Up on the Housetop

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.

Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go?
Ho, ho, ho, who wouldn’t go?
Oh, up on the housetop, click, click, click!
Down through the chimney, with good Saint Nick.

Away in a manger

Away in a manger no crib for a bed,
The little Lord Jesus laid down his sweet head.
The stars in the heavens look down where he lay,
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay.
Asleep, asleep, asleep, asleep.
Asleep the Savior in a stall.
Asleep asleep, asleep, asleep.
Asleep the Lord of all!

Jingle Bells

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!

(sing 2x) Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells, jingle all the way.
Oh what fun, it is to ride in a one horse open sleigh.

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer

Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer had a very shiny nose,
And if you ever saw it, you could even say it glows.
All of the other reindeer used to laugh and call him names;
They never let poor Rudolph join in any reindeer Games.

Then one foggy Christmas Eve, Santa came to say;
“Rudolph with your nose so bright,
Won’t you guide my sleigh tonight?”
Then how the reindeer loved him
As you shouted out with glee,
“Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer,
You’ll go down in history.”

Must Be Santa

Who’s got a beard that’s long and white
Santa’s got a beard that’s long and white

Who comes around on a special night
Santa comes around on a special night

Special Night, beard that’s white

Chorus: Must be Santa, Must be Santa
Must be Santa, Santa Clause


Who wears boots and a suit of red
Santa wears boots and a suit of red

Who wears a long cap on his head
Santa wears a long cap on his head

Cap on head, suit that’s red
Special night, beard that’s white

Chorus

Who’s got a big red cherry nose
Santa’s got a big red cherry nose

Who’s laughs this way HO HO HO
Santa laughs this way HO HO HO

HO HO HO, cherry nose
Cap on head, suit that’s red
Special night, beard that’s white

Chorus

Deck The Halls

Deck the halls with boughs of holly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Tis the season to be jolly
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Don we now our gay apparel
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la
Troll the ancient Yule-tide carol
Fa-la-la-la-la, la-la-la-la

9 Little Reindeer

One little, two little, three little reindeer.
Four little, five little, six little reindeer.
Seven little, eight little, nine little reindeer.
Ready to pull Santa’s sleigh.

Santa Claus is Coming to Town

You better watch out, you better not cry
You better not pout, I’m telling you why
Santa Claus is coming to town

He’s making a list, checking it twice
Going to find out who’s naughty and nice
Santa Claus is coming to town

He sees you when you’re sleeping
He know when you’re awake
He knows if you’ve been bad or good,
So be good for goodness sake.

(repeat first verse)


Christmas Bells

Christmas bells are ringing.
Hear what they say to you
Jesus is born in Bethlehem, in Bethlehem
