Here's part of it, pieced together from a couple of sound samples. Maybe somebody else can supply the rest.

REINDEER ON MY ROOF
Tom Paxton

...Reindeer on my roof
Dasher and Dancer and Comet and Vixen
Reindeer on my roof
Last year as he came down the chimney,
,
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 I must be the jumpiest kid in town.
I can hear people murmurin' through my bedroom door,
Footsteps passin', someone laughin'. What are they whisperin' for?
Last year Santa Claus ate all the cookies, left just a couple [o' crumbs?]....

I've got a tape with the song on. Has lyric sheet with it. I'll look it out. It's a children's Christmas song album (oh err think it's in the loft)

Ok I've found the tape...it's called a child's Christmas. The lyric sheet is missing. I'll transcribe it later or pass on a copy of the tape to anyone who wants it

Hi, Carole - please do transcribe it if you get the chance. I have lots of Paxton, but not that one.
Thanks a lot.

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
