Album Notes
Vicki Swan & Jonny Dyer are well known interpreters of old folk style ballads and uplifting music. Now join with them in the seasonal celebration of wassailing. Merriment and dancing guaranteed.

You gentlemen of England
I'll have you to draw near
for we have come a wassailing
for your strong ale and beer
Wassail wassail, come listen to our call
wassail wassail, a health to one and all

God bless the master of the house
the misteress also
and all the little children that
around your table go

Likewise your men and maidens
your cattle and your store
and all that dwell within your gates
we wish you ten times more

Put your hand into your pocket and
draw out your keys
go down unto your cellar
and draw what e'er you please

Draw us a jug of your fine grog
or your ale that is so brown
and we will drink a health to you
and another to the crown

From walking and from talking
we are so very dry
we trust your good nature that
you'll never us deny

This night you'll never us deny
of your strong ale and beer for
we'll come no more a-wassailing
until this time next year.
