Likewise. I've never heard of any lyrics to this tune. However, when the Liverpool Ceili Band played it they used to jump out of their seats and lilt in chorus. "Hi ho, diddley do..........."

Am I alone in wishing people played this a little less, almost every session seems to have a version of it at some point. I know its a good tune it's just that I've heard it far to often.

I know the tune is overplayed, but I wonder if at some point there might have been words. It seems like such a straightforward tune that it could be sung. M.E.

It's a dance tune, they typically don't have lyrics, it's for dancing to.

Ah Gerry, my dancing days are long gone, I once saw a really great dance troup during the Halifax Festival a few years ago, Asian men, absolutely stunning.

As it's got a range of an octave and a sixth, it wouldn't be the easiest of tunes to sing.

Dingle Regatta ... Was one of the favorite tunes played by John Doonan and Dave Bullmer.
The very same Mudcat No.1 musical personality. And he used to sing a bit in the middle a well.

I think that's the tune that "Irish Rebel Theater" used to sing to, lines about Suffering Irish, suffering Irish, suffering Irish Catholics (repeat)
They bow, they pray, they go to mass three times a day ....

really! anyone remember that? If you know Jim Olwell or Bill Ochs they might corroborate?

hammer \ boat \ Seamus \ nails \ hammering \wind in the sails \ water coming in through a hole in the bottom \ wetter \ married a sailor \ never goes to sea anymore \ whisky \ women \ Dingle Regatta
