The Merry Fellows
THE MERRY FELLOWS ;
Now, since we're met, let's merry, merry be,
In spite of all our foes; And he that will not merry be, We'll pull him by the nose.
Let him be merry, merry there,
While we're all merry, merry here; For who can know where he shall go To be merry another year ?
He that will not merry, merry be, With a generous bowl and a toast,
May he in Bridewell be shut up And fast bound to a post. Let him be merry, etc.
He that will not merry, merry be,
And take his glass in course, May he be obliged to drink small beer,
Ne'er a penny in his purse. Let him be merry, etc.
He that will not merry, merry be,
With a company of jolly boys, May he be plagued with a scolding wife
To confound him with her noise, Let him be merry, etc.
1 From Bell's " Poems Ballads and Songs of the English Peasantry."
