Here we come a-wassailing
Among the leaves so green
Here we come a-wand'rin
So fair to be seen.

CHORUS

Love and joy come to you,
And to you 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 our beer
Of the best barley:

CHORUS

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

CHORUS

Good master and good mistress,
While you're sitting by the fire
Pray think of us poor children
Who wander in the mire.

CHORUS

God bless the master of this house
Likewise the mistress too!
And all the little children
That 'round the table go.

CHORUS
