(Sung by Kelly Ehrman)

Hal-an-tow - clap Jolly-rum-ba-low -clap We were up -clap Long before the day-o To welcome in the summer To welcome in the May-o Summer is a comin' in And winter'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

{Chorus}

Robin Hood and Little John Have both gone to the Fair-O And we will to the Merry Green To hunt the buck and hare-O

{Chorus}

We have brought the budding branch To bless each hearth and bed-O For none should lie alone today But to the woods, instead-O!

{Chorus}

Bless the Lord and Lady And all who dwell in here-O And bless the little children born And turning of the year-O

{Chorus}
