Countdown to Christmas: "Children Go Where I Send Thee"

The late Tennessee Ernie Ford may be better known for pitching Martha White muffins and hits like "Sixteen Tons", but he also knew how to appeal to children. One example comes, I believe, from his self-titled TV show in the 50's, in which he performs "Children Go Where I Send Thee", which, as Ernie himself explains, can be adapted into a Christmas carol rather easily.

Come to think of it, this is the only time of year where I hear this song nowadays. How about you?
