Lyrics: Blow, thou Winter Wind

Blow, thou Winter Wind

From The Wassailant (2020)

Blow, blow, thou winter wind,
Thou art not so unkind
As man’s ingratitude;
Thy tooth is not so keen,
Because thou art not seen,
Although thy breath be rude.

Sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.
Then, heigh-ho, this life is most jolly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.

Freeze, freeze, thou bitter sky,
That dost not bite so nigh
As benefits forgot:
Though thou the waters warp,
Thy sting is not so sharp
As friend remembered not.

Sing, heigh-ho! unto the green holly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.
Then, heigh-ho, this life is most jolly:
Most friendship is feigning, most loving mere folly.

Lyrics: William Shakespeare, As You Like It
