Thread Name: Lyr ADD: There's the Day (Cathal McConnell)
Subject: RE: 'There's the day' - Cathal McConnell
This is how it sounds to me:

A fitful sleep the landlord had
Mid din and chattin' not of his choosing
His daughter 'til the morning light
Abusing those who sat there boozing

I've not heard these words before, but as it's a translation of "Nil se 'na La", perhaps one of the bilingualists might be able to say if this is likely to be the translation?

BTW, I agree with your opinion of the CD. Interesting to hear, among others, Richard + Linda Thompson recording 'together' again- though apparently in different studios.
