"Up On The Housetop" is a holiday song originally preformed and written by Benjamin Hanby in 1864.[1] It was heard during the Season Eighteen episode, "#HappyHolograms".

Background

In "#HappyHolograms", this song is heard as part of the Washington Redskins: Go Fuck Yourself Holiday Special. While Kurt Cobain Hologram performs the song, he holds a shotgun while singing. At the end, it is loaded with a flag that reads "Merry Christmas" and shoots confetti when fired.

Lyrics

Santa Claus comes tonight
No more days to count, but the even longer wait begins
The suspense of having to wait from bedtime to morning
Yes, kids all over the world say their prayers and go to sleep
Knowing that when they wake up, the little fat man with the long white beard
Will have stopped by their houses and left the answer to a wish
From the most magical sack there ever was

(Ho-ho-ho, ho-ho-ho)
(Up on the house top, ho-ho-ho)

Up on the house top reindeer pause
Out jumps good old Santa Claus
Down through the chimney with lots of toys
All part of a little ones with Christmas joys

(Ho-ho-ho) oh, who wouldn't go?
(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
Up on the housetop, click-click-click
Down to the chimney with the good St. Nick
First comes the stocking of little Nell
Oh, dear Santa will fill it well
Give her a dolly that laughs and cries
One that can open and shut its eyes

(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 the good St. Nick

Look in the stocking of little Bill
Oh, just see what a glorious fill
Here is a little hammer and lots of tacks
A whistle and a ball and 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 through the chimney with the good St. Nick

(Ho-ho-ho) oh, who wouldn't go?
(Ho-ho-ho) who wouldn't go?
Up on the housetop, click-click-click
Down through the chimney with the good St. Nick
Down through the chimney with the good St. Nick
