HERE WE COME A-WHISTLING

[57]

Here we come a-whistling through the fields so green,

Here we come a-singing, so fair to be seen.

God send you happy, God send you happy,

Pray God send you a Happy New Year.


The roads are very dirty, my boots are very thin,

I have a little pocket to put a penny in.

God send you happy, God send you happy,

Pray God send you a Happy New Year.


Bring out your little table and spread it with a cloth.

Bring out some of your old ale, likewise your Christmas loaf.

God send you happy, God send you happy,

Pray God send you a Happy New Year.


God bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress, too,

And all the little children that round the table strew.

God send you happy, God send you happy,

Pray God send you a Happy New Year.
