GUEST,Jim Knowledge Is there an Essex Wassail? (30) RE: Is there an Essex Wassail? 14 Dec 11

I `ad that Ethel Spelter in my cab the other day. She`s the last of the Essex professional women hot dip galvanisers. She wrote that book," Zinc or Swim".
I said , "Morning Eff, `ave you seen that Mudcat. They`re asking about if there are any Essex wassails. Surely, as a county authority on and singer of local folk songs you could answer that?"
She said, " I suppose the one that comes to mind is "Giving Time".
I said, "`ow does it go then?"
She went, "Well chorus is like this.
          "Christmas is a giving time.
            A lovely time of year.
            I wanna go to Lakeside
            And get me presents there"".

Whaddam I Like??
