TEXT

Wassail, wassail, all over the town
Our toast it is white and our ale it is brown,
Our bowl it is made of the white maple tree,
With the wassailing bowl, we’ll drink to thee.
Wassail! Wassail! Wassail!

And here is to Dobbin and to his right eye,
Pray God send our master a good Christmas pie,
A good Christmas pie that may we all see,
With a wassailing bowl, we’ll drink to thee.
Wassail! Wassail! Wassail!

Then here's to the maid in the lilywhite smock,
Who tripped to the door and slipped back the lock
Who tripped to the door and pulled back the pin,
For to let these jolly wassailers in.
Wassail! Wassail! Wassail!

Come butler, come fill us a bowl of the best,
Then I pray that your soul in heaven may rest,
But if you do bring us a bowl of the small,
May the devil take butler, bowl and all.
Wassail! Wassail! Wassail!
