The clip featured here is from the CD "Zing with Cindy" I teach in a day school and of course, the new book based on this song won the caldecott.Joseph had an overcoat It's a wonderful book and a great song. One of the parents in the school had an old recording of the song- and low and behold, one item is missing from your version, and from the book- the order is coat, jacket, vest, yarmulke!!!!, tie, button. Seems the song is more Jewish in it's original form.
