LYRICS

Hey ho, nobody home
Meat nor drink nor money have I none
Yet shall we be merry
Hey ho, nobody home

Soal, a soal, a soal cake, please good missus, a soal cake
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry,
any good thing to make us all merry
One for Peter, two for Paul, three for Him who made us all

O bless the master of this house – likewise the mistress too
and all the little children that ‘round the table grow
The cattle in your stable, the dog by your front door
And all that dwell within your gates, we wish you then times more

Go down into the cellar and see what you can find
If the barrels are not empty, we hope you will be kind
We hope you will be kind with your apple and your pear
for we’ll come no more a’ soalin’ ‘til this time next year

The streets are very dirty, my shoes are very thin
I have a little pocket to put a penny in
If you haven’t got a penny, a half penny will do
If you haven’t got a half penny, then God bless you.
