Done my best from the tape.....here you are...Happy Christmas

Reindeer on my Roof    - Tom Paxton

I can't sleep when I'm straining to hear the reindeer on my roof
All night long I'm wide awake to hear, reindeer on my roof
What was that that? The wind? What was that? A bird?
I can't sleep 'cos I want to hear Santa Claus
I've just got to keep my eyes open

Last year I fell asleep and I never heard reindeer on my roof
Dasher and Dancer, Comet & Blitzen, reindeer on my roof
Last year as you came down the chimney
Daddy said there was proof
Proof that Santa Claus came, and there were reindeer on the roof

I'm in bed and in my head I'm turning upside down
I'm awake you see and must be the chumpiest git in town
I can hear people murmering through my bedroom door
Footsteps passing, someone laughing
What are they whispering for


Last year Santa Claus ate all the cookies, left just a couple of crumbs
Sister asleep, I won't wake her when the magic moment comes
When our house is quiet, on the longest night of the year
I'll be be the only one waken up
And I know what I'll hear

I can't sleep when I'm straining to hear the reindeer on my roof
All night long I'm wide awake to hear reindeer on my roof
What was that that the wind? What was that? a bird?
I can't sleep 'cos I want to hear Santa Claus
I've just got to keep my eyes open

Last year I fell asleep and I never heard reindeer on my roof
Dasher and Dancer Comet & Blitzen, reindeer on my roof
Last year as you came down the chimney
Daddy said there was proof
Proof that Santa Claus came, and there were reindeer on the roof
