we've been awhile awandering amongst the leaves so green,
but now we come awassailing so plainly to be seen
for its Christmas time, when we travel far and near; May God bless you and send you a happy New Year.

We are not daily beggars
That beg from door to door;
We are your neighbors children,
For we've been here before;
For it'S. .

We've got a little purse,
Made of leathern ratchin skin;
we want a little of your money
To line it well within;
For it's,. .

Call up the butler of this house
likewise the mistress too,
and all the little children
that round the table go
For it's. .

Bring us out a table
and spread it with a cloth
bring us out a mouldy cheese
and some of your Christmas loaf
For it's. .

Good master and good mistress
while you're sitting by the fire,
Pray think of us poor children
That's wandered in the mire
For it's. .
