Reinhard Tune Req: Rise up a new years morning (7) RE: Tune Req: Rise up a new years morning 23 Jan 21


The first link seems to have been spot on.

Rose, Calennig sang "Rise Up a New Year's Morning" on their CD "A Gower Garland" which was released in 2000 to mark the 50th anniversary of the death of Phil Tanner. They noted:

"By the time the Rev J.D. Davies wrote The History of West Gower in 1879, wassailing was a tradition that had died out in Gower apart from the parish of Llangennith, where this song was sung by children on New Year's Morning."

A New Year's Song in The History of West Gower

Get up, a new year's morning,
For the cocks are all a-crowing;

Chorus (after each verse):
And if you think we are too soon,
And if you think we are too soon,
Rise up and look at the stars and the moon.
A row de dow de dow de dow de row de dow de do

Rise and light the fire
And make us toast and beer

Come, rise and don't be lazy
For we are getting crazy

Calennig sing Rise Up a New Year's Morning

Rise up a New Year's morning
For the cocks are all a-crowing

Chorus (after each verse):
And if you think we are too soon
And if you think we are too soon
Rise up and look at the stars and the moon
Row de dow de, row de dow de, row de dow de day
Row de dow de, row de dow de, row de dow de day

Rise up and light the fire
And bring us toast and beer

Rise up and don't be lazy
For we are getting crazy
