Hadestown Original Broadway Cast

"’Twas the Night"

'Twas the night before Christmas and all through the house
Not a creature was stirring, not even a mouse
The stockings were hung by the chimney with care
In hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there

The children were nestled all snug in their beds
While visions of sugar-plums danced in their heads
My sisters in their 'kerchiefs, and I in my cap
Had just settled our brains for a long winter's nap

Whoa, whoa

Now on the lawn there arose such a clatter
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash

The moon on the breast of the new-fallen snow
Gave the lustre of mid-day to objects below
When, what to my wondering eyes did appear
But a miniature sleigh and eight tiny reindeer

Whoa, whoa

With a little old driver, so lively and quick
I knew in a moment that it must be St. Nick
More rapid than eagles his coursers they came
And he whistled, and shouted, and called them by name
