Traditional harvest-home ballad

Our oats they are howed, and our barley's reaped,
Our hay is mowed, and our hovels heaped;
Harvest home! harvest home!
We'll merrily roar out our harvest home!
Harvest home! harvest home!
|: We'll merrily roar out our harvest home! :|

We cheated the parson, we'll cheat him again;
For why should the vicar have one in ten?
One in ten! one in ten!
|: For why should the vicar have one in ten? :|
For staying while dinner is cold and hot,
And pudding and dumpling's burnt to pot;
Burnt to pot! burnt to pot!
Till pudding and dumpling's burnt to pot,
Burnt to pot! burnt to pot!

We'll drink off the liquor while we can stand,
|: And hey for the honour of old England!
Old England! old England! :|
