Subject: RE: Wassail/pace egg song
Hi Tug, I have an idea it was included in a Mummers play. They tend to have snippets of songs adapted to fit the circumstances. For example, I once heard "We'll have a jovial wedding..." sung to the tune of "Land of Hope and Glory".
Were you in an area that had Morris dancers and Mummers?
