LT 42 Souling Song 

(Note: Sung as a round)

Soul, soul, soulin 
Please, good missus, a soulin
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, 
And the mistress of the hall 
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 

My shirt is very dirty and my shoes are very thin 
I haven't 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 

Origionally sung for All Souls Night (November 1) not 
Christmas. A soul cake (soulin - a simple fruit cake) was left for the spirits that left their graves on Samhain (Halloween).
