about

Satirical carol by James Ryman, 15th-century Franciscan friar of Canterbury, a parody of "Nowel syng we bothe al and som".

lyrics

Farewell, Advent, Christmas is come!
Farewell from us both all and some!

With patience thou hast us fed,
And made us go hungry to bed;
For lack of meat we were nigh dead;
Farewell from us both all and some!

Our bread was brown, our ale was thin,
Our bread was musty in the bin,
Our ale sour before we did begin
Farewell from us both all and some!

This time of Christ's feast natal,
We will be merry, great and small,
And thou shalt go out of this hall;
Farewell from us both all and some!

Advent is gone, Christmas is come;
Be we merry now, all and some!
He is not wise that will be dumb
In ortu Regis omnium.
