Here we come a wassailing among the leaves so green,
Here we come a wandering so fair to be seen.
Love and joy come to you and to your wassail too
And God bless you and send you a happy New Year
And God send you a happy New Year.
2. We are not daily beggars that beg from door to door,
We are your neighbor's children whom you have seen before.
3. We have got a little purse of stretching leather skin;
We want a little money to line it well within.
4. God bless the master of this house, likewise the mistress, too,
And all the little children that round the table go.
5. Good Master and good Mistress, while you sit by the fire,
Pray think of us poor children a-wandering in the mire.
