“Christmas Time is Coming”

Christmas time is coming, tra-la!
And happy we shall be
When we hang our stockings, tra-la!
And see the Christmas tree.
Santa Claus is coming, tra-la!
And high his sleigh is piled
Full of toys and candies, tra-la!
To please each little child.
3. Like a leaf or feather
In the windy, windy weather,
We will whirl about and twirl about,
Then all sink down here.
