Souling Song

  A soul, a soul, a soul cake
  Please, good missus, a soul cake
  An apple, a pear, a plum or a cherry
  Any good thing to make us all merry
  One for Peter, two for Paul
  Three for Him who made us all

God Bless the master of this house, the mistress also
And all the little children who around your table grow
Likewise your men and maidens, your cattle and your store
And all that dwells within your gates
  we wish you ten times more

The lanes are very dirty and my shoes are very thin
I've got a little pocket I can put a penny in
If you haven't got a penny, a ha' penny will do
If you haven't got a ha' penny, then God bless you

Sung for All Souls (November 1). A soul cake was left for the
  spirits that left their graves on Samhain (Halloween)
Recorded by Watersons and by Peter, Paul, and Mary
