CORNISH WASSAIL


The mistress and master our wassail begin,
Pray open your door and let us come in.

Chorus:
With our wassail, wassail, wassail, wassail,
And joy come to our jolly wassail.

We hope that your apple trees will prosper and bear,
That we may have apples and cider next year.

Chorus

And where you’ve one hogshead we hope you’ll have ten,
So that we may have cider when we call again.

Chorus

We hope that your barley will prosper and grow,
So that you will have some and enough to bestow.

Chorus

We wish you a blessing and a long time to live,
Since you’ve been so free and willing to give.

Chorus
