I think that was "Arrest These Merry Gentlemen."

Sorry, I got that wrong. I think the reason you're having trouble finding it is that there was a "Southrepps May Song" but the wassail was "The Trunch Wassail." It's on The Ever-Decreasing Circle.

If there is a "Southrepps Wassail," I've not heard it.

It does exist but on what recording here is part of a thread about kipper tunes

3242 SOUTHRUPS WASSAIL SONG
The name of the village is Southrepps, which is in North Norfolk, about 1 mile east of the A149 Cromer to North Walsham road and three miles WNW of Trunch, the home of the Kipper family. The version in the DT has so many differences to the recording that it is easier to give that in whole, rather than point out each individual variation.

    All on this pleasant morning from Southrepps come we
    To ask a bag of sugar to sweeten our tea.
    If you can't spare a bag, then cupfull will do.
    And if you can't spare that, well, bugger you.

    The master of this house in his rusty old chain
    Will stamp and swear and curse and he'll bitterly complain.
    He'll say he's most offended with his house we're bein' so bold,
    And if he had his way, we'd be left out in the cold.

    The mistress of this house with her stockings all torn
    Will rant and rave and curse the very hour we were born.
    And then she'll fall asleep and loudly she will snore.
    And when her body is at peace we hope her soul's at war

    The daughter of this house is a proper little whore,
    She's had all the blokes round here, and plenty more.
    And all her little children round the table do go
    Until they all get dizzy and fall down on the floor.

    This house and this arbour are in disrepair.
    I'd live all in my pigsty as soon as I'd live there.
    Your men and your maidens are rolling in the dew,
    Unless they all take care, they'll go down with the flu.

    Bad luck to this household, the season begun.
    Where you had ten apples, may you have one.
    Now we'll come no more nigh you until the next year,
    And the last thing we'll do is to wish you good cheer.

That's the May song, #1, hence the "pleasant morning."

I believe it was mislabeled a wassail in the DT.

See the Kipper tribute site here.

Cheers,
C

Kipper, Sid, The Ever Decreasing Circle, Dambuster Records, DAM 012,1985.

Yes it is entitled May Song however it has many wassail characteristics.

Next problem is finding a contact address for sidkipper not just his agent....anyone have a good address...?

I believe Sid is a very hard man to catch.
You probably have to go through his agent but check out
Sid's website.
