GUEST,Donal Lyr Req: Truly Irish - Ormonde Folk Records 1971 (10) RE: Lyr Req: Truly Irish - Ormonde Folk Records 19 13 Apr 09

Nora Beag sounds like the kind of song where verses might be ad libbed. Emmet Spiceland had the third
verse as under, the translation is from Pádraigín Ní Uallachaín's 'A Stor Is a Stórín.'

Dá mbíodh agam ciste, níl ach tuistiún
Chuirfinn ort gúna álainn
Bhéarfainn fuiscí, tae agus brioscaí
'S bheinn ag gabháil cheoil go lá leat

If I had money, I haven't fourpence,
I'd buy you a beautiful dress,
I'd give you water, tea and biscuits,
And I'd be making music 'til dawn with you.
