From A Christmas Garland: Carols and Poems from the 15th Century to the Present Time, edited by Arthur Henry Bullen (London: John C. Nimmo, 1885), page 223:


MAIDS, GET UP AND BAKE YOUR PIES
From the Bishoprick Garland, 1834 (a collection of songs, ballads, etc., belonging to the county of Durham).

1. Maids, get up and bake your pies,
Bake your pies, bake your pies.
Maids, get up and bake your pies.
'Tis Christmas day in the morning.

2. See the ships all sailing by,
Sailing by, sailing by.
See the ships all sailing by
On Christmas day in the morning.

3. Dame, what makes your ducks to die…? (etc.)

4. You let your lazy maidens lie…. (etc.)
