Christmas is coming
The geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in the old man’s hat.
If you have no penny, a ha’penny will do,
If you have no ha’penny,
then God bless you. *
I am in the ‘God bless you’ category. How about you? 😉 But I am rich in blessings so the lack of pennies is really of no account ~ but, sigh, I would like that world trip.
The Christmas is Coming nursery rhyme/carol has several versions. * The one I give is my memory of the rhyme I sang as a child. For more information, you may like to read one account of its origins here https://treasuryislands.wordpress.com/2012/12/13/origins-christmas-is-coming/
