December 10

Christmas is Coming

Performed by Liddy Barlow on tin whistle

Words and music: English traditional

Liddy played this tune by ear the way she remembers it, after discovering that no two versions in sheet music or Internet recordings seem to be the same. Her rendition seems to be most closely influenced by the classic John Denver and the Muppets recording on the album "A Christmas Together."


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!
