The traditional version of this song uses the melody of the English dance tune "Country Gardens", but other melodies exist. Edith Nesbit Bland composed a popular tune for the lyrics. The Kingston Trio recorded the song as "A Round About Christmas", on their album The Last Month of the Year. A calypso sounding version was featured on the album John Denver and the Muppets: A Christmas Together and a loose, jazzy piano-based arrangement was featured in the musical score of A Charlie Brown Christmas.
