Here we come awassailling

 

MELODIE

  

Here we come a-was-sail-ing a-mong the leaves so green, 
Here we come a-wan-der-ing, so fair - to be seen:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

Our was-sail cup is made - of the rose--ma-ry tree, 
So - is your beer - of the best - bar--ley:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

We are not dai-ly beg--ers that beg from door to door, 
But we are neigh-bours' child--ren whom you have seen be-fore:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

Call up the but-ler of this house, put on his gold-en ring; 
Let him bring us a glass of beer and bet-ter we shall sing:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

We have got a lit-tle purse of stretch-ing lea-ther skin; 
We want a lit-tle of your mon-ey to line it well with-in:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

Bring us - a - ta--ble and spread it with a cloth; 
Bring us out a moul-dy cheese and some of your Christ-mas loaf:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

God bless the mas-ter of this house, like-wise the mis-tress too; 
And all the lit-tle child--ren that round the tab-le go:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.  

Good mas-ter and good mis--tress, while your're sit-ting by the fire, 
Pray think of us poor child--ren a-wan-d'ring in the mire:  
Love and joy come to you, And to you your was-sail too, 
And God bless you and send - you a hap--py New Year, 
And God send you a hap--py New Year.
