Christmasunderstanding

Up on the house, stop—Rain, dear—pause;
out jumps good old Santa, ‘cause
down through the chimney there’s lots of toys,
all sorts of little ones. Christmas! Joy!

Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go?
Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go
up on the housetop—sick, sick, sick—
and down through the chimney? No, I heard something, Nick.

First comes the shocking of little Nell;
oh, dear Santa filled it well.
Gave her a dolly that laughed when she cried,
and when it was over he shut her eyes.

Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go?
Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go
up on the housetop—tip-toe-tip–
and down through the chimney? Check the kids.

Next comes the shocking 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.

Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go?
Oh, oh, oh! Who wouldn’t go
up on the—How…? Stop!—click! bang! kick!—
and down from the chimney—Good saints, Nick!
