Come Buy My Nice Fresh Ivy
Lyrics

Come, buy my nice fresh ivy, and my holly sprigs so green.
I have the finest branches that ever yet were seen.
Come buy from me, good Christians, and let me home, I pray,
That God will bless your Christmas and a happy New Year’s Day.

Ah, won’t you buy my ivy? It’s the loveliest I’ve seen.
Ah, won’t you buy my holly? Oh you who love the green.
Do take a little branch of each, and on my knees I’ll pray
That God will bless your Christmas and a happy New Year’s Day.

Alternate Lyrics

Come, buy my nice fresh ivy, and my holly boughs so green.
I have the finest branches that ever yet were seen.
Come buy from me, good Christians, and let me home, I pray,
And I’ll wish you a merry Christmas time and a happy New Year’s Day.

Ah, won’t you take my ivy? It’s the loveliest ever seen.
Ah, won’t you have my holly boughs? All you who love the green.
Do take a bunch of each, and on my knees I’ll pray
That God will bless your Christmas and be with you a New Year’s Day.
