CAROL
ON BRINGING BOAR's HEAD, USED BEFORE CHRIST­MAS PRINCE, AT ST. JOHN BAPTIST'S COLLEGE, OXFORD, CHRISTMAS, 1607.
1.  The Boare is dead, Loe, heare is his head,
What man could haue done more Then his head of to strike, Meleager like,
And bringe it as I doe before ?
2.  He liuinge spoyled Where good men toyled,
Which made kinde Ceres sorrye; But now, dead and drawne, Is very good brawne,
And wee haue brought it for yu.
3.  Then sett downe ye Swineyard, The foe to ye Vineyard,
Lett Bacchus crowne his fall, Lett this Boares-head and mustard Stand for Pigg, Goose, and Custard,
And so yu are welcome all.
