Christmas is Coming, the Goose is Getting Fat
Vocal Round (or instrumental!)

Christmas is Coming, the Goose is Getting Fat!  

This fun vocal round has old-fashioned and - to our generation of kids - silly words, but they are still fun to sing.

I couldn't find a single video of a performance of this song!  

Yes, there are videos with similar names and lyrics, BUT DIFFERENT TUNES.  A couple performances were actually using the melody for "White Coral Sands."  

If you find a video that matches this tune, I would love to know about it!

Christmas is Coming, the Goose is Getting Fat!  Vocal round for Christmas in 3 keys, for 3 parts

The harmonies in this little round are very pretty, but this tune is not particularly easy. 

It is the initial note of line three that is especially hard to get.  Lots of repetition may be needed - but as is often the case, the trickier the melody, the more fun it is to sing once it has been conquered!

This melody would also work well with violin, recorders, or other instruments.  We're using this in our upcoming Christmas recital.  I hope your students like it too!

The book "150 ROUNDS for Singing and Teaching" includes this and several other rounds for Christmas...

Lots of trolls in this book.
