Somerset Gloucestershire Wassail Lyrics

Somerset Gloucestershire Wassail - The Kingston Trio

Wassail wassail all over the town The cup

It is white and the ale it is brown

The cup it is made of the good ashen

Tree and so is the malt of the finest barley

 

Oh master and missus are you all within

Pray open the door and let us come in

Oh master and missus who sit by the fire

Pray think of the trav'lers who

Walk through the mire

 

Oh where is the maid with the silver hair pin to

Open the door and let us come in

Oh master and missus it is our desire

A good loaf and cheese and a toast by the fire

 

There was an old man and he had an old

Cow and how for to keep her

He didn't know how

He built up a barn for to keep

His cow warm and a drop of good

Cider will do us no harm

 

The good dog of Langport

He burnt his long tail and this is the

Night we go singing wassail

Oh master and missus now we must be gone

Bless all in this house until we come again

 

Bless all in this house 'till we come again
