Thread Name: Lyr Req: Nut Brown Maiden
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Nut Brown Maiden
While My Nut Brown Maiden was largely unknown in Cape Breton Ho-ro Mo Nighean Donn Bhoideach was very popular in the Gaelic tongue and in a Gaelic parody version. One verse was sung in English:
I asked her if she loved me
She said she was above me
She opened the door and shoved me
And called me a fool
