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 SOF
