Welcome Here!

Welcome Here!

 

Welcome Here, welcome here.

All be alive and be of good cheer.

 

I made a loaf that’s cooling there,

With my neighbors I will share.

Come, all ye people here me sing

A song of friendly welcoming.

 

I’ve got a pie all baked complete,

Pudding, too, that’s very sweet.

Chestnuts are roasting,  join us here

While we dance and make good cheer.

 

I’ve got a log that is burning hot

Toddy’s bubbling in the pot.

Come in, ye people, where it’s warm,

The wind blows sharp and it may storm.

 

Welcome Here, welcome here.

All be alive and be of good cheer.
