Extended version with 2 key changes

Grainger found this tune in Miss H H Mason’s Collection of Country Songs - from Lancashire U.K.
It is a nonsense song in that additional verses, adding animals as the singer desires.
He freely adapted it for a 4 part women's’ choir.

I have taken some liberties in my scoring in moving the melody around, and adding additional harmonies.
This version has the faster quaver passage and 2 changes of key.
Arranged double wind quintet/bass

Note the peculiar spelling of Christmas as ....”Chrisimas”

It does have similarities with the Christmas Carol “I saw three ships come sailing by.....on Christmas Day in the morning”
