BLOW BLOW THOU WINTER WIND lyrics from "As You Like It" 1599 play Arthur Young (m) William Shakespeare (l) as recorded by Al Bowlly & The Henderson Twins with Ken "Snake Hips" Johnson & his West Indian Orchestra April 24th 1940 London Blow blow thou Winter wind, (note - "wind" pronounced "wined") Thou art not so unkind As man's ingratitude. Thy tooth is not so keen Because thou art not seen, Although thy breath be rude. Hi-ho, sing hi-ho, Unto the green holly, Most friendship is feigning, Most loving mere folly. Go hi-ho, the holly, This life is most jolly, So blows our Winter wind. Freeze freeze thou bitter sky, That does not bite so nigh As benefits forgot. Thou thou the waters warp, Thy sting is not so sharp As friend remembered not. Hi-ho, sing hi-ho, ho-ha-ho-ha-hi, Unto the green holly, Most friendship is feigning, Most loving mere folly. Go hi-ho, the holly, ho-ha-ho-ha-ho-ha holly, Be he-he-he-he jolly, So blows our Winter wind. (Transcribed by Peter Akers - November 2012)
