Anyone know this song???

Don



As Katie one night , by sunset light was busy spinning her thread,

'twas Tin came by with a laugh in his eye and listen to what he said

I had a fling with the fairy queen, where fairies dance (something, something).

If you'll come this night where stars are bright you'll see, you'll see.

For I'm the lad the fairies have had to tea, to tea.

I have googled it with no hits therefore you must have written it yourself!

Then you didn't google properly because there is one hit available in a blog.

Re: Song of the queer prince

As Katie one night by moonlight bright
sat busy spinning her thread,

'Twas Tim came by with a laugh in his eye,
and now listen to what he said,

"I've had a fling in a fairy ring, where fairies dance and sing and play
won't you come this night while stars are bright,
You'll see, You'll see,

For I'm the lad the fairies have had,

To tea, ... to tea !!
____________________

It is a song that my dear mother taught me --
I'm not sure of the title, but she told me that it was from a play
that she was in when she was a girl. Does any one know it ?
When I learn the ABC notation (help:?) I'll try to write it out.
-- Boron (aka Hank the aspiring bodhran player)"
