Christmas is Coming

When I was growing up, my mom had an album of Christmas carols sung by Harry Belafonte which we listened to every Christmas.  This one was one of my favorites....

Christmas is coming,
The goose is getting fat,

Please put a penny
In the old man's hat.

If you haven't got a penny,
A ha'penny will do,

If you haven't got a ha'penny,
Then God bless you


Author of this Christmas carol and nursery rhyme is unknown.  Edith Nesbit Bland, British author of numerous children's books (many of which I happily read over and over again as a child) composed the music to this in the late 19th century according to this carol website.
