Lyrics

(English folk song)

Christmas is coming! The goose is getting fat!
Please to put a penny in the old man’s hat.
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.
If you haven’t got a ha’penny, then God bless you.
