History   Many lyrics were set to the tune, all having in common the metaphorical, themes of strong ale, and of "selling barley", the feminine equivalent, of "sowing wild oats", In 1688 a "new Scotch song" set to the tune, appear. Written by D'Urfey, it began "Cold and raw the North did, blow".

Tempo   110
Words   Be merry, my friends, and list a while, Unto a merry jest, It may, from you produce a smile, When you heare it exprest, Of a young man, lately married, Which was a boone goode fellow, This song in's head, he alwaies carried, When drink made him mellow, I cannot go home,, nor will I go home, It's long of the oyle of Barly, I'le tarry all, night for my delight, And go home in the morning early, --Humour,, Wit and Satire (1647)
