Subject: Lyr Add: OH HERE'S TO THE HOLLY (Logan/Loder)
From: Q (Frank Staplin)

Oh, Here's to the Holly
W. M. Logan, Music E. J. Loder

Oh, here's to the holly that cures melancholy;
And hangs in the hall at Christmas time,
When wit sparkles out and wassailers shout
A stave of Christmas rhyme.
With berries red he smiles on high,
Enthroned with his mistletoe bride-
While love lights up each maiden's eye
Who blushes her swain beside.

Oh, the holly's the tree- youth doats upon thee,
Thine innocent folly age glories to see-
All ages love thee- all ages love thee-
The holly's the tree for me.

Oh, here's to the holly that kills melancholy,
And makes the board merry at festive time;
When old English cheer awakes the New Year,
And bells at midnight chime.
May all our friends in health survive
The year that to-morrow shall be;
May kindness keep that love alive
Men's hearts e'er delights to see.

Oh, the holly's etc.

Oh, here's to the holly that kills malancholy,
That gladdens each heart with twelfth-night rhyme-
When each takes a part with right merry heart,
To make the most of time.
How many meet by chance tonight,
To sport 'neath the mistletoe bough-
Whose hearts will speak and breasts unite,
Ere whisper'd a word or vow.

Oh, the holly's etc.

J. E. Carpenter, ed, The Book of Modern Songs, G. Routledge, London, 1858.
On line, book found by Jim Dixon.

E. J. Loder wrote Eliza's Flight, music at Levy Sheet Music, By the Waters of Xarama, and other songs that can be found online, but I haven't found the music to this New Year's song.

Errors-
last verse-=Melancholy
E. J. Loder, Edwin James.

(In The Athenaeum, the song Hoist High the Flag Again, verse by Purday, is called "trash.")
