I tried to reply to an old thread but it was closed. This is Tannas version Si Morag


'S i Mórag, 'si Mórag
'S i Mórag a rinn a 'bhanais
'S i Mórag, 'si Mórag
A rinn a' bhanais ainmeil

Bha i dubh an uiridh
Agus tha i dubh am bliadhna
'S bha i dubh a h-uile latha
Chunnaic mise riamh i

Bha fear an taigh aig bean an taigh
'S an sgallag aig an t-searbhant'
Bha m buachaill' aig a' bhanaraich
'S mo sheannair aig mo sheanmhair

Bha Seònaid is fidheall aic'
Raonaid is pìob aic'
Mór nan Dos is feadan aic'
'S sheinneadh iad an ruidhle


Chorus (after each verse):

Didn't Morag have the most wonderful wedding
The most wonderful wedding of them all
Didn't Morag have the most wonderful wedding
Much spoken about by everyone

She was black-haired last year
And she's still black-haired this year
She's been black-haired since the
First time that I ever saw her

The man of the house danced with the good-wife
The farmhand with the maid
The cowherd danced with the milkmaid
And my grandfather and grandmother danced together too

Janet played the fiddle
And Rachel played the pipes
Mor nan Dos played the chanter
And they all played together for the wedding reel

This is known as Donal Agus Morag by Altan

Lyrics (not sure if it's right)


Bhí móran daoine uasal ann
Bhí tuatanaigh na h-Alban ann
Bhí 'n maistir scoile 'san ministir ann
Bhí an laoch Mac Amhlaigh ann

Dónal, 'se Dónal
'Se Dónal a rinne an bhainis
Dónal agus Mórag
A rinne an bhainis ainmeil

Bhí cearcan ann, is bhí geoidh ann
Bhí corr is dosean sgairbh ann
Seo bha iad is bhí car bí ann
'Sé cearc na n-éan a b'fhearr dhiubh ann

Bhí bradáin 's bric on Éirne ann
Is flúirse feoil na bhfia n-éan ann
Feol mart is lao, ba bhlasta bhí
Bhí uanfheol friochta is oisfheoil ann

Bhí 'n dí go fial 's go fairsing ann
Bhí brannda is fíon na Spáinne ann
Bhí póitín stil is mead le mil
Bhí beoir is leann na h-Éireann ann

(Curfá 4x)


The nobility was plentiful
And ordinary folk from Scotland
The school master and the minister
With the warrior McAuley there

Chorus (after each verse):
It was Dónal, it was Dónal
It was Dónal made the wedding
It was Dónal and Mórag
That made a famous wedding

The meat of hens and geese there were
With a dozen commorants and more
Of all the foods on offer there
The tender chicken they did prefer

There were Erne trout and salmon there
With meat of game and wildfowl
Prime beef and veal made a tasty meal
With roasts of lamb and venison

The varied drinks were plentiful
With Spanish wine and brandy
Distilled poteen and honey-mead
And ale and beer from Erin

(Chorus 4x)

Any quewwstions just ask.
