Thread Name: Folklore: Epiphany! Should we be wassailing?
Subject: RE: Folklore: Epiphany! Should we be wassailing?
Version from, I would guess, 1964
We four Beatles from Liverpool are
George in a taxi, Paul in a car
John on a scooter blowing his hooter
Following Ringo Start
I have mentioned the Salford Wassail tradition before. The young men disguise themselves with hoods and request funds with the following Wassail song.
Wassail, Wassail all over the place
Give us your money or we'll smash your face
Our clubs they are made of oak and of ash
We'll break both your legs if you don't give us cash
