1. Good health to you all over the town!
We dance and we sing in the street up and down.
We sing to your health, dance with mirth and with glee.
We dance and we sing 'round yon maple tree.

2. So here is to Cherry and to his right cheek
Pray God send his master a good piece of beef,
And a good piece of beef then may we all see.
We dance and we sing 'and good health to thee.

3. Come here, sweet maid in frilly white smock,
Come trip to the door and pull back the lock.
Come trip to the door go summon your kin.
We dance and we sing, so let us come in.
