Shepherdess with the North Star eyes
Mistletoe and hawthorn wings
Oh, little darling
First footing
My heart again, against the tide
And I sailed out to the blue

Oh, who would take fire
From the house on this day?
There’s a blaze in the field a’coming
Oh, the ghost is here
To let out the old year

Oh, shepherdess with the North Star eyes
All I ever pray
Is for first footing
There’s a blaze in the field a’coming
Oh, the ghost is here
To let out the old year
To let out the old year
