On Liam Leads Us in Song: A' Soalin'

Soul, a soul, a soul cake, please good missus a soul cake.

An apple, a pear, a plum, a cherry,

any good thing to make us all merry,

One for Peter, two for Paul, three for Him who made us all.

At the end of Kim and Cornelia's Baha'i devotional for March a few Wednesdays ago, Cornelia sang, at Liam's request,  A' Soalin' . It can be sung as a round, which we did. Cornllia led the first group and Liam lead the second. 
I'm old enough to remember the Peter Paul and Mary version of this old song from the one of their albums during their heyday in the 1960s. Read about the full history of the song here. The song is associated with All Souls Day, which is celebrated in November, and here we  were on the verge of St Patrict's Day. We sang it anyway.  
BTW, I wonder if there are any Naw-Ruz songs? -gw
