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.
