Souling Song
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 (Halloween). A soul cake was left for the

spirits that left their graves on Samhain (Halloween)

Recorded by Watersons and by Peter, Paul, and Mary
