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.
