The boar's head in hand bear I,
Bedeck'd with bays and rosemary.

I pray you, my masters, be merry
Quot estis in convivio (As many as are in the feast)

Caput apri defero (The boar's head I offer)

Reddens laudes Domino (Giving praises to the Lord)

The boar's head, as I understand,

Is the rarest dish in all this land,

Which thus bedeck'd with a gay garland

Let us servire cantico. (Let us serve with a song)

Our steward hath provided this

In honour of the King of Bliss;

Which, on this day to be served is

In Reginensi atrio. (In the Queen's hall)
