Hal An Tow
We were up
long before the day-o
To welcome in the summer
To welcome in the May-O
Summer is a cummin in
and winther's gone away-O
Take no scorn to wear the horn
it was the crest when you were born
Your father's father wore it
Your father wore it, too
Robin Hood and Little John
Have both gone to the Fair-O
and we will to the Merry Green-Wood
to hunt the buck and Hair-O
Bless aunt Mary Moses
who raised a mighty storm-O
It blew away the Spanish fleet
between the dusk and Morn-O
We have brought the budding branch
to blest each hearth and bed-O
For none should lie alone today
But to the woods, instead-O!
Bless the Lord and Lady
and all who dwell in here-O
and bless the little children born
and turning of the year-O
