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

Who wouldn’t go!

Up on the house-top,

Click, (click), click, (click), click (click, click).

Down through the chimney with good Saint Nick!__________

Here comes the snow. It’s fallin’ down.

It’s fallin’ gently upon the ground.

Here comes the snow. It’s fallin’ down.

It leaves a blanket upon the ground, ground, ground.

 

Snow, snow, snow, snow! Snow, snow, snow, snow!

Snow, snow, snow, snow! Snow, snow, snow, snow!

 

Peacefully the flakes of white

are falling down on us tonight.

Stay in by the fireside

or bundle up and go outside.

 

Down the road upon a sleigh,

just having fun this winter day.

Down a hill upon a sled

then snuggle in a winter bed.

 

Falling down, down, down, down.

Falling down, down, down.

 

repeat all

 

Here comes the snow.

Part 1 Shining through

 

Solo 1

You with the sad eyes

Don’t be discouraged, oh I realize

It’s hard to take courage

 

Duet

In a world full of people

You can lose sight of it all

The darkness there inside you

Makes you feel so small

 

ALL

But I see your true colors

Shining through

I see your true colors

And that’s why I love you

 

So don’t be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors are beautiful

Like a rainbow (canon in 2 parts)

 

Solo

Show me a smile then

Don’t be unhappy

Can’t remember when

I last saw you laughing

 

Duet

If this world makes you crazy

And you’ve taken all you can bare

Then call me up

Because you know I’ll be there

 

ALL

And I see your true colors

Shining through

I see your true colors

And that’s why I love you

 

So don’t be afraid to let them show

Your true colors

True colors are beautiful

Like a rainbow (canon in 2 parts)

 

I see your true colors.
