Gathering the Sweet Mistletoe

‘Now, often I’m asked why I’m always so sad / When jolly King Christmas is near, / And why I prefer the country to town / At this happy time of the year? / Just listen, I’ll tell you, ’twas at Christmas I fell / In love with my dear little Lou, / In a dear country glade when together we strayed / Gathering the sweet mistletoe.’ A note under the title informs the readers that the ballad was ‘Sung with immense success by TOM BOWLING’.for more click here
