Canton, Cardiff Wales Wren Song
^^
Mister Jones is a worthy man,
And to his house I brought my wran
I brought my wran to visit him here
To wish him a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year.

The Wran, the Wran that you may see
Here guarded on our Holly Tree,
A bunch of ribbons by his side,
And a bottle of whiskey to be his guide,

St. Stephen's Day was caught in the furze
We hunted him up and we hunted him down
Till one of our brave boys knocked him down

You've knocked me for six, Peasant! I would like to know how a host of Cardiff collectors didn't notice this gem amongst them. Is it very old or very young?

Keep up the good work!

Is there a tune for this. When was it collected and by whom from whom? Very interesting.

No tune mentioned in the text :(

Thanks!
