Our sheep-shear is over and sup-per is past,
Here's a health to our Misteress all in a vull glasst.
For she is a good 'ooman and purvides us good cheer.
Here's a health to our Misteress, so drink up your beer.

Collected from Mrs Squarey, Downtown. Lucy Broadwood remarks that the tune is possibly a major version of "The Seasons of the Year".
I have amended the fifth bar, changing the quaver to a dotted quaver to correct the length of the bar; this alteration appears in keeping with other bars with the dotted-quaver/semiquaver pattern.
