Take Up Your Fiddle

ake up your fiddle and stick
Take up your pipe and drum
Each lad now bring your lass
Now to the village come

And master bring good ale we pray
Oh bring us out good beer
And we shall dance to the merry pipes
And bring you all good cheer

Bring Sarah and bring Pru
Bring Hannah and bring May
Strike up our dancing tune
And join our dancing day

Sweet mistress bring us cakes we pray
All laid out in array
And we shall dance for you and sing
On this our dancing day

Take up your stick and dance
Sing with the bells and drums
Good cheer be to you all
To each and everyone
