Written by: folk song
From the album: If On A Winter's Night
 

 

A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry
Any good thing to make us all merry
A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake.
One for peter, two for paul, three for him that made us all

God bless the master of this house, and the mistress also
And all the little children that round your table grow
The cattle in your stable the dogs at your front door
And all that dwell within your gates
We wish you ten times more

A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry
Any good thing to make us all merry
A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
One for peter, two for paul, three for him that made us all

Go down into the cellar and see what you can find
If the barrels are not empty we hope that you'll be kind
We hope you'll be kind with your apple and your pear
For well come no more a soalin till christmas time next year

A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry
Any good thing to make us all merry,
A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
One for peter, two for paul, three for him that made us all

The streets are very dirty, my shoes are very thin
I have a little pocket to put a penny in
If you havent got a penny, a ha penny will do
If you havent got a ha penny - God bless you

A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry
Any good thing to make us all merry
A soal cake, soal cake, please good missus a soul cake
One for peter, two for paul, three for him that made us all
