Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Old Scottish Lament / Fear a Bhata
I rang the School of Scottish Studies about this a few years ago - and to check my pronunciation was correct.

They told me that "Na horo eile" is merely fill-in - they described it as the Yeah, yeah bit of "She loves you, yeah, yeah, yeah"!!

Incidentally they said my pronunciation was great - for a sassenach! Hmmmm ....
