Wassail Song lyrics:

Here we come a wassailing
Among the eaves so green
Here we come a wandering
So fair to be seen.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Our wassail cup is made
Of the rosemary tree
And so is your beer
Of the best barley.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door
But we are neighbours' children
Whom you have seen before.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Good Master and good Mistress
As you sit by the fire
Pray think of us poor children
Are wandering in the mire.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

We have a little purse
Made of ratching leather skin
We want some of your small change
To line it well within.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Call up the Butler of this house
Put on his golden ring
Let him bring us a glass of beer
And the better we shall sing.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

Bring us out a table
And spread it with a cloth
Bring us out a moldy cheese
And some of your Christmas loaf.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.

God bless the Master of this house
Likewise the Mistress too
And all the little children
That round the table go.

Love and joy come to you
And to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.
