please include a link to where you found this
i see reference to Ars Nova singers...
and the label is New Art Recordings....
(ars nova = new art)
with a link to amazon and cd baby...
where the music can be purchased by download here:
http://www.amazon.com/A-Boulder-Wassail/dp/B00359WCDQ

http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/ArsNovaSingers

i hear something like :

"here's a health to our health food...and many kind souls?....

brew pubs and health clubs and things out of doors...

with yoga and zen....about which to shout...

we're certified organic....inside and out...

all over the town....

any one else catch any more?

The group has a web page. I found it on I tunes.

It may take sitting down and transcribing. A great set of creative lyrics.

A BOULDER WASSAIL is sung by the Ars Nova Singers, of Boulder, Colorado, on their album "Yuletide" (2009) which is available for download (for a fee) at CDBaby. You can also hear it on Spotify, but it would be very difficult to transcribe. I have not found any lyrics online.

This is what I'm hearing - Ars Nova member Steve Winograd sang this for us at this year's Christmas Eve ceilidh at Teri Rasmussen and Chris Doyle's place.

A Boulder Wassail

The tea, the tea all over the town
Our bread is whole wheat and our rice it is brown
Our bowl it is made of renewable trees
Keep your dog on a leash and no smoking, please!

Here's a health to the lama and to his bright robe
He comes from Tibet ancient teachings to probe
He comes to our town and at all times of year
For he knows that in Boulder nirvana is here

Here's a health to our health food in many fine stores
The brew pubs and health clubs and things out of doors
We've yoga and Zen about which to shout
We are certified organic inside and out

(Chorus)

And here's to the youths in their tight Lycra shorts
Who bike, climb, and run and play all kinds of sports
We see them go by, and it's all we can do
To remember the days when we were thin, too

(Chorus)
