Thread Name: Wassail ? What is it ...
Subject: RE: Wassail ? What is it ...
Hmmm. Okay. I've also heard the "Hey ho" round used in a cycle of rounds that goes (in order)

Rose, rose, rose, rose
Will I ever see thee wed?
I will marry as I will, Sire
As I will

Hey ho, nobody home,
Meat nor drink nor money
Have I none, yet I will be merry

Ah poor bird, take thy flight
Far across the shadows
Of this dark night

*note* All of the above are in Rise up Singing which is my pride and joy :) The song Rose is French originally and if there's enough interest, I'll post the French lyrics :)
