Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
Please to put a penny in the old man's hat.
If you haven't got a penny, a ha'penny will do,
But a penny's better, a penny or two are better, or three, or four!
Christmas is coming, the geese are getting fat,
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, a farthing will do,
If you haven't got a farthing, God bless you!

God bless the master of this house,
Likewise the mistress too,
And all the little children
That round the table grow.
Love and joy come to you
And to you your wassail too,
And we wish you a happy New Year.
