Thread Name: Wassail ? What is it ...
Subject: RE: Wassail ? What is it ...
There's an Apple Tree Wasssail that goes:
Old apple tree we'll wassail thee
and hoping thou wilt bear
The Lord does know where we shall be
to be merry another year
To blow well and to bear well so merry let us be
Let every man take up his cup, here's health to the old apple tree!
(spoken): Apples all! Hats full! caps full! barrels full! barn floors full! And a little heap under the stairs!

We used to sing this in the Christmas Revels; I believe it was a New Years' tradition but I can't remember where.
