Wild Mountain Thyme. Sussex Harp. lyrics Youtube

December 30, 2009

Wild Mountain Thyme – lyrics, sound & Youtube

1. Oh, the summer time is come
And the trees are sweetly blooming,
And the wild mountain thyme
grows around the blooming heather.

Chorus:
Will you go, lassie, go?
And we’ll all go together
To pull wild mountain thyme
All around the blooming heather,
Will you go lassie, go?

2. I will build my love a bower
By yon clear and crystal fountain,
And on it I will pile
All the flowers of the mountain.

Chorus

3. I will range through the wild
And the deep glen sae dreary
And return wi’ my spoils
To the bower of my Dearie

Chorus

4. If my true love, she were gone
Then I’d surely find another
Where the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

Oh, the summer time is come
And the trees are sweetly blooming
And the wild mountain thyme
Grows around the blooming heather.

Molly Malone / Cockles and Mussels / lyrics mp3

May 28, 2009

Molly Malone or Cockles & Mussels or In Dublins fair city

Molly Malone or Cockles & Mussels or In Dublins Fair City mp3

  1. In Dublin’s fair city,
Where girls are so pretty,
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone,
As she wheeled her wheelbarrow
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh”!

Chorus:
Alive, alive oh! alive, alive oh!
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh”!

2. Now she was a fishmonger,
And sure twas no wonder,
For so were her mother and father before,
And they each wheeled their barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh”!
Chorus:

3. She died of a fever,
And no one could save her,
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone.
Now her ghost wheels her barrow,
Through streets broad and narrow,
Crying, “Cockles and mussels, alive, alive oh”!
Chorus:

She Moved Through the Fair – lyrics wav mp3

She Moved Through the Fair – lyrics wav mp3

Richard Brennan kindly invited me to teach Alexander Technique & singing at his training course in Galway last week. I had a truly wonderful time.
Here are the students and I singing that beautiful and haunting Irish ballad She Moved Through the Fair.  
I’m really hoping to hear a few more songs from that direction.
Here is the downloadable version She Moved Through the Fair – wav

She Moved Through the Fair

My young love said to me,
“My mother won’t mind
And my father won’t slight you
For your lack of kind”
And she stepped away from me
And this she did say:
“It will not be long, love,
Till our wedding day”

She stepped away from me
And she moved through the fair
And fondly I watched her
Move here and move there
And then she went homeward
With one star awake
Like the swan in the evening
Moves over the lake

The people were saying,
“No two e’er were wed
But one had a sorrow
That seldom was said”
And I smiled as she passed by
With her goods and her gear,
And that was the last
That I saw of my dear.

I dreamed it last night,
That my young love came in
So softly she stepped that
Her feet made no din
And she laid her hand on me
And this she did say
“It will not be long, love,
‘Til our wedding day”
