Green grow the holly
So doth the ivy
Tho’ winter blasts blow ne’er so high
Green grow the holly

Red burns the holly
Black shines the ivy
Tho’ winter nights be ne’er so dark
Red burns the holly

Straight stands the holly
Close twines the ivy
Tho’ winter storms be ne’er so wild
Straight stands the holly

Green grow the holly
So doth the ivy
Tho’ winter blasts blow ne’er so high
Green grow the holly
