'Joy, Health, Love and Peace'
Joy, Health, Love and Peace be all here in this place
Our king is well dressed in silks of the best
We have travelled many miles over hedges and stiles
We have powder and shot, to conquer the lot.
Old Christmas is past, twelfth tide is the last
It is not of the newborn King of Winter, the wondrous Child they sing, but of the wren, the King of the Birds, hunted in Pembrokeshire, Suffolk, the Isle of Man, and Dingle, Co Kerry, Ireland on St Stephen's Day - December 26th
