We LOVE this song – it’s such a brilliant showtune for #Christmas. This is our cover version (with added #Makaton) of Tom Fletcher’s song from his book “The Christmasaurus”. This story features a young boy who is a wheelchair user who is obsessed with dinosaurs! You can buy the original story with CD soundtrack here:

Lyrics and Makaton Sign Transcription:

I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
It made my heart go jump! (HEART / SURPRISE)
The stomp of boots (BOOTS)
And the clomp of hooves (REINDEER / *FOOTSTEPS)
Went clippety, clippety, clump! (*FOOTSTEPS)
Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
I wonder what it was…(TO THINK / WHAT)
I really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa Claus! (REAL [TRUE] / HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)

Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
It sounded like a sleigh…(NOISE / SAME / SLEIGH)
I went to bed on Christmas Eve (TO GO / BED / CHRISTMAS / NIGHT)
And now it’s Christmas Day! (NOW / CHRISTMAS / DAY)
Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
I wonder what it was…(TO THINK)
I really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa Claus! (REAL [TRUE] / HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)

All the sleigh bells that go jingle (SLEIGH / BELLS)
Are making that jingle noise (BELL / NOISE)
And the man they call Kris Kringle (MAN / NAME / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
He’s bringing us lots of toys (TO BRING *DIRECTIONAL / TOYS)

Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
Now I can’t sleep because (NO / SLEEP / BECAUSE)
I really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa Claus! (REAL [TRUE] / HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
Let’s Go! (GO)

Take it away Santa
All the sleigh bells that go jingle (SLEIGH / BELLS)
Are making that jingle noise (BELL / NOISE)
And the man they call Kris Kringle (MAN / NAME / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
He’s bringing me lots of toys (TO BRING *DIRECTIONAL / TOYS)
Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOF)
Now I can’t sleep because (NO / SLEEP / BECAUSE)
I really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa Claus! (REAL [TRUE] / HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
(bring it home Singing Hands)

Oh, I heard a noise on the rooftop! (TO HEAR / NOISE / ROOFTOP)
Now I can’t sleep because (NO / SLEEP / BECAUSE)
I really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa (REAL [TRUE]/ HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
Ho, ho, ho, ho, hope it’s Santa (HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
Really ho, ho, hope it’s Santa Claus! (REAL [TRUE] / HOPE / FATHER CHRISTMAS)
