Get Up A New Year's Morning



Get up a New Year's morning

For the cocks are all a-crowing


CHORUS: And if you think we are too soon

And if you think we are too soon

Rise up and look at the stars and the moon

Oh rowdy-dowdy, rowdy-dowdy, rowdy-dowdy day


Get up and light the fire

And bring us toast and beer


Get up and don't be lazy

For we are getting crazy



Noted from the parish of Llangennith by the Reverend J D Davies in A History Of West Gower, 1884. Children used to form parties each New Year to go out wassailing.
