Christmas Is Coming

Edith Nesbitt wrote the lyrics to this traditional Christmas round more than a century ago, and the song has been popular ever since. It reminds us that the Christmas season is one of charity and giving, a time to think of those less fortunate than ourselves.

It is a well known traditional carol talking about the meaning and symbol of Christmas: a time of celebration and goodness. It became popular in the 1960s when The Kingston Trio band included it on their album “The Last Month of the Year” titled “A Round About Christmas”.

“Christmas Is Coming” Lyrics

Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat
Please to 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!

 

“Christmas Is Coming” Another Version

Christmas is a coming, The goose is getting fat
Won’t you put a nickel, In the old man’s hat;
If you haven’t got a nickel, Then a penny will do
If you haven’t got a penny, The God bless you.

Christmas is a coming, The snow is on the ground
Elves are wrapping presents, And cheer is all around;
Santa’s getting ready for, His sleigh ride tonight
Rudolph is the leader, With his nose so bright.

Christmas is a coming, Let’s decorate the tree
Hang up baby’s stocking, Make sure there’s one for me;
Mom is in the kitchen, Baking gingerbread
Daddy’s tasting frosting, his Mouth’s all green and red.

Christmas is a coming, The goose is getting fat
Won’t you put a nickel, In the old man’s hat;
If you haven’t got a nickel, Then a penny will do
If you haven’t got a penny, then God bless you.
If you haven’t got a penny, Then God bless you.
