Subject: Lyr Req: Mo fein is tu fein
From: Jimmy C

Not much to go on but I was asked by a friend if I knew an Irish song containing the phrase " mo fein is tu fein". I can't find anything in my collection so I am opening it up to all you good and knowledgeable people.
Apparently it is a very nice romantic song with a great air, but I must confess I have never heard it.

The words would in English be "myself and yourself".

Nothing springs to mind, but if it is Irish gaelic then it should be "mé féin is tú féin". Might help in searching.

In 'An Dunaire 1600-1900 Poems of the Dispossessed' (O'Tuama & Kinsella Dolmen Press 1981) there is
a song/poem 'Tú féin is mé féin' which, I suppose, means essentially the same thing. It is
apparently a dialogue between a man and a woman of which the authors publish only the first part,
the woman's. I can scan and post the three verses and translation that I have, but I don't think
that they can be what you are after.

Rings a very faint bell. Sung in jigtime?

Actually, I think what's ringing in my head goes "Mise is tusa is....." which is an emphatic form of the phrase.

This site doesn't help with the words, but it shows that the song is on tape.

Martin, I don't know what time it is in. I have never heard it ?.

I will ask around the Irish diaspora up here.

Guest (28 June)

I would appreciate getting the three verses. It just might be the one my friend is looking for.

Slan.

Jimmy

probably the song from Tomá Mac Eoin
I thought I'd posted the lyrics on Mudcat previously (copying from a book published by Cló Iar-Chonnachta) but if so I can't find them now
