TT ~ The Goose Is Getting Fat

As soon as I began to write I realized it was Tuesday! And this could be a Track Tuesday post. Music ROCKS.

Do you know this Christmas song? I remember learning it when I was a wee child at Sangre Ridge elementary school in Stillwater, Oklahoma. I start singing it around the first of December and randomly throughout the year. If you know me personally, you know that is completely normal for me.

It is usually sung as a round (and I LOVE singing in rounds!!! I don’t know why… is that a mental problem?) It is also I believe an English (meaning UK) Christmas song and maybe I am just getting back to my roots – my Grandpa on my father’s side was almost, if not, 100% English. So, listen up, have a spot of tea if you wish and sing along! And if you have some friends by you, then by George, strike up that round.

Oh, and if any of you can tell me what a ha’penny is, I would really ‘preciate it. Cheers!

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 then a ha’penny will do

If you haven’t got a ha’penny then GOD BLESS YOU

And if I don’t make it back online before Sunday, a blessed Christmas to each and every one of you.
