           D                                 G                D    
Now Christmas is comen and New Year begin
        G               D          A               D
Pray open your door and let us come in. 

Chorus:

With our wassail, wassail, wasail
Joy come to our jolly wassail

Here at your door, we already do stand
The jolly wassail boys with bowl in our hand

This anceint old house we will kindly salute
It is an old custom you need not dispute

We hope that your apple trees prosper and bear
And bring forth good tidings when we come next year

We hope that your barley will prosper and grow
That you may have plenty and more to bestow
