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,
A farthing will do
If you haven't got a farthing then
God bless you!

This song ends at ha'penny
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in an old man's hat;
If you haven't got a penny a ha'penny will do,
If you haven't got a ha'penny, God bless you.
