Hal an Tow Take no scorn to wear the horn It was the crest when you were born Your father's father wore it And your father wore it to Hal an tow, jolly rumbalo We were up long before the day o To welcome in the summer To welcome in the may o For summer is a comin in And winter's gone away o Robin Hood and Little John Have both gone to the fair o and we will to the merry green wood To hunt the buck and hare o What happened to the Spaniards Who made so great a boast o It's they shall eat the feathered goose And we shall eat the roast o And as for that good knight, St. George St. George he was a knight o Of all the knights of Christendom St. George is the right o God bless Aunt Mary Moses In all her power and might o May she send peace to England Send peace by day and night o Recorded by Watersons on Frost & Fire; by Shirley Collins on No Roses; The Oyster Band on Step Outside and others SOF
