A cute little children's song by Lead Belly that I've always liked. I've also seen it available on YouTube. Incidentally, I believe the lyrics printed in The Leadbelly Songbook (Oak Publications, edited by Moses Asch and Alan Lomax, p.61) are incorrect - I really do believe the line is "it won't be long," rather than "twelve feet long"! (???)

Christmas Is A-Coming

Christmas is a-comin', and it's a-jumpin'
Christmas is a-comin', and it's a-jumpin'
Christmas is a-comin', and it's a-jumpin'
Boy, it won't be long

Chicken crows at midnight on a Christmas Day
Rooster crows at midnight on a Christmas Day

Children get so happy on a Christmas Day
Children get so happy on a Christmas Day

Santa Claus comin', and he's a-comin'
Santa Claus comin', and he's a-comin'
Santa Claus comin', and he's a-comin'
Boy, it won't be long

Santa Claus comes on Christmas, on a Christmas Day
Santa Claus comes on Christmas, on a Christmas Day

Children run an' tell their pappy on a Christmas Day
Children run an' tell their pappy on a Christmas Day

Little children get so happy on a Christmas Day
Little children get so happy on a Christmas Day

[Spoken: "Don't forget it!"]
