Song Lyrics

Step we gaily, on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm in arm and off we go
All for Marie's wedding

Over hillways up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown
Past the shielings through the town
All for sake of Marie


Red her cheeks as rowans are
Bright her eyes as any star
Fairest of them all by far
Is our darling Marie


Oh plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her krill
Plenty bonny bairns as well
That's the toast for Marie
