Make we mery, bothe more and lasse
For now ys the tyme of Crystymas

1. Let no man come into this hall,
Groom, page nor yet marshall,
But that some sport he bring withall,
 For now is the time of Christëmas.

2. If that he say he cannot sing,
Some other sport then let him bring,
That it may please at this feasting,
 For now is the time of Christëmas.

3. If he say he can naught do,
Then for my love ask him no mo,
But to the stocks then let him go,
 For now is the time of Christëmas.
