You know the routine, Conrad. Please post what lyrics and background information you have - or did you just find the title on iTunes and nothing more?
I take it this is the one recorded by David W. Solomons on his Songs of Solomons album. From the sound sample, all I can say is, "It's Greek to me." Solomons has a number of his recordings available for free download on his Website, but not this one.
Here's his description of "Greek Wassail":
    A Wassail in fast 7/4 rhythm, like a slightly drunk Greek dance. The words are by the composer and very tongue in cheek, but with an overlay suggesting a critique of the less "culturally inclined" holidaymaker!
It's enough to make me want to download the song. Oh, wait - there's a YouTube Video. After hearing it, I think I'll decline the temptation to transcribe it - even though it is in English.

As an extra, added bonus, here's Ludhe Sing Tishu. Not my cuppa tea.
