 The Ho Ho Ho  
 Listen to it here  

There's a thing I wanna lay on you  
It's a lotta fun, n' totally new  
Just feel the rythm n' let it flow  
N' do a dance called the Ho Ho Ho.  
It's a thing that's easy to do  
The Noggrots do it, and the Spot Wolves too.  
They slyly dance the Ho Ho Ho  
Watch 'em do it, here they go.  

There's no need to wear a frown  
Or let circumstances get you down  
Just put a smile upon your face  
N' Ho Ho Ho all over the place.  
I call you up on the telephone  
But all you do is weep n' moan  
I don't like to see you down so low  
So I'll have to demonstrate the Ho Ho Ho.  

There was a man that I don't know  
But somebody taught him the Ho Ho Ho  
He took a plane n' flew so high  
He cut a scratch across the sky.  
So if you're feeling sad n' blue  
Remember what I said to you  
N' now just before I go  
I'm gonna do the Ho Ho Ho.
