Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes Domino.

The boar's head in hand bring I,
With garlands gay and rosemary,
I pray you all sing merrily,
Qui estis in convivio.

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes Domino.

The boar's head, I understand,
Is the chief service in this land;
Look, wherever it be fand,
Servite cum cantico!

Caput apri defero,
Reddens laudes Domino,
Qui estis in convivio,
Servite cum cantico.
