Hal-An-Toe


Jake has gone to wear the horn
It was the crest when you were born
Your father's father wore it then
His father wore it too.

   Chorus:

Hal-an-toe, Jolly lum-alow
We were up long before the day-o
To welcome in the summer
To welcome in the May-o
For Summer is a-comin' in
And Winter's gone away

Robin Hood and Little John
Have both come to the Faire-o
And we will to the merry greenwood
To hunt the buck and hare-o

What happened to the Spaniards
That made so great a boast-o?
O' they shall eat the feathered goose
And we shall eat the roast-o

God bless our Gloriana (God save the Queen!)
God send her power and might-o
God send good peace to En-ga-land
Send peace by day and night-o
