Cornish Wassail Song


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

With our wassail, wassail, wassail,
And joy come with our jolly wassail!

Now Christmas is comen and New Year begin,
Pray open your door and let us come in. Refrain

We hope that your apple trees will prosper and bear
And bring forth good cider when we come next year. Refrain

We hope that your barley will prosper and grow
That you may have plenty and some to bestow. Refrain

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