Devonshire Place Wassail song

Wassail Wassail the apple trees
Wassail Wassail the apple trees (x2)
Young and old brave and bold
Leaves may come and leaves may go
The orchard knows a thing or two
The orchard knows a thing or two

MulberryWassail Wassail the apple trees
Wassail Wassail the apple trees (x2)
To make you aware of cherry & pear
Quince & mulberry medlar & plum
The orchard knows a thing or two
The orchard knows a thing or two

Wassail Wassail the apple trees
Wassail Wassail the apple trees (x2)
Talk to the trees the climate's a-changing
Even here where the Met men dwell
The orchard knows a thing or two
The orchard knows a thing or two

Wassail Wassail the apple trees
Wassail Wassail the apple trees (x2)
Climate's a'kilter there's nothing fixed
Deluge and drought what brings it about?
The orchard knows a thing or two
The orchard knows a thing or two

Wassail Wassail the apple trees
Wassail Wassail the apple trees (x2)
Each tree has its song as the year awakes
Bless the fruit & bless this place
The orchard knows a thing or two
The orchard knows a thing or two

Repeat The orchard knows a thing or two (etc. etc.)
