March, march the morning sun and the dawn wind dancing to the early tune of small pretty birds up from the dark fields chancing. Then men and dames give up your beds, all maids and boys you're yawning to hear the bells ring frosty round to tell its Christmas morning. And some to bake and some to make and some the gifts go seeking and lovers to their trysting place to share their joys and speaking. So soon around come cakes and ale and time is for a story then silent all do gather round here tell of Jesus' glory. Then dance my dream to the magic of the bow from dusk til early dawning (to find the Earth) serene and still This clear St. Stephen's morning.

My father had an acre of land Sing hey ho sing ivy My father had an acre of land Whistling holly and ivy Ey ho ivy ey ho ivy He ploughed it with a team of rats Sing hey ho sing ivy He ploughed it with a team of rats Whistling holly and ivy Ey ho ivy ey ho ivy He sowed it with a pepper pot sing hey ho etc He harrowed it with a fine tooth comb sing hey ho etc He rolled it with a rolling pin sing hey ho etc He reaped it with a butter knife sing hey ho etc He threshed it with his Sunday toupe sing hey ho etc He whimmed on a thimble's brim sing hey ho etc He sent it to market on a louse's back sing hey ho etc And now the poor old man is dead sing hey ho etc

As I was invited to a nobleman's wedding Being of a fair one that proved unkind And she being ill for to think of her fond love Her former true love she left behind When the wedding supper it was over The company around were to sing a song The first that sang was her former true And there for her he did sing one How can you lie your head on a another man's pillow? And I that was your love so late And you left me here for to wear this green willow And discontent love for your sake The bride she sat to the head of the table Hearing those words that she knew quite well. No longer! No longer! She could not bear it And down from the table the new bride fell One request I am going to ask you Grant it to me I hope you will For this very night for to lie with my mamma The rest of my life to lie with thee This request was freely granted Sighing and sobbing she went to bed And he rose early the next morning He rose and he found his new bride dead How long have I to wear this lonely green willow? Is it for one month of two? And then I'll take off this lonely green willow And change the old love for the new A green willow tree is a handsome flower In the spring time of the year Where manys the lover spend many the long hour Talking of love that never was near
