Christmas Is A Coming – Lyrics

“Christmas  A Is Coming” is a nursery rhyme and Christmas carol (frequently sung as a round) with lyrics as follows:

Christmas is coming, the geese are 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!

This became the basis for Bing Crosby’s song ‘”Christmas Is a-Comin’”, re-written by Frank Luther, which contains these lyrics as follows:

When I’m feeling blue, when I’m feeling low,
I start to think about the happiest man I know.
Now he doesn’t mind the snow, he doesn’t mind the rain,
But all December you will hear him at your window pane,
Singing again and again and again and again and again:
Christmas is a coming and the bells begin to ring,
The holly’s in the window and the birds begin to sing.
I don’t need to worry, and I don’t need to fret,
And the more you give at Christmastime the more you get.
God bless you, gentlemen, God bless you!
The more you give at Christmastime the more you get.
Christmas is a coming, the egg is in the nog.
Please give a friendly man a friendly little dog.
If you haven’t got a friendly dog, a friendly cat will do,
If you haven’t got a friendly cat may God bless you!
God bless you, gentlemen, God bless you!
If you haven’t got a friendly cat may God bless you!
Christmas is a coming, the lights are on the tree.
How about a turkey leg for dear old me?
If you haven’t got a turkey leg, a turkey wing will do.
If you haven’t got a turkey wing may God bless you!
God bless you, gentlemen, God bless you!
If you haven’t got a turkey wing may God bless you!
Christmas is a coming, the cider’s in the keg.
If I had a mug of cider I wouldn’t have to beg.
If you haven’t got a mug of cider, half a mug will do.
If you haven’t got half a mug, may God bless you!
God bless you, gentlemen, God bless you!
If you haven’t got half a mug, may God bless you!
If you haven’t got a thing for me, may God bless you!
