Up on the Housetop, L’arrivo di Babbo Natale, canzone laica

Up on the Housetop, L'arrivo di Babbo Natale, canzone laica 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?
Upon on the housetop, click, click, click
Down thru the chimney with good Saint Nick

Look in the stocking of little Will
Oh, just see what a glorious fill!
Here is a hammer and lots of tacks
Whistle and 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

Up on the housetop (Ho! Ho! Ho!) è una canzone natalizia statunitense, scritta intorno al 1860  (probabilmente nel 1864) da Benjamin Russell Hanby (1833-1867) e pubblicata per la prima volta nel 1865.

Si tratta di una delle prime canzoni laiche su Babbo Natale composte negli Stati Uniti d’America.

Tra le prime incisioni del brano figura quella di Gene Autry nel 1953.
