...and there's also a version by the Toronto Consort, on their CD - wait for it - The Little Barley-Corne. Much as before, with one "new" verse:

If sickness come, this physick take, it from your heart will set it
If feare encroach take more of it, your heart will soon forget it
Apollo and the muses nine do take it in no scorne
So joviall boyes your Christmas keep with the little Barly-Corne.
