This website was down for a few days, which prompted me to write these verses, and to sing them at the Mudcat Singaround of 12/13 September 2022, to the tune of Wild Mountain Thyme:

Oh, the wintertime is here [in Australia],
And Mudcat's on the fritz.
How will I learn my songs?
I'm about to lose my wits.

Chorus:
Will ye load, Mudcat, load,
And we'll all browse together,
Downloading lyrics
From the electronic heather.
Will ye load, Mudcat, load?

If the website should crash,
Where will I find another?
Fresno State? Mainly Norfolk?
Or YouTube – what a bother!

Chorus

I sang Ecumenical Hora at the most recent singaround. The lyrics were written by Murray Porath, the tune is that of Hava Nagila. The version I sang went

Ave, Maria; Ave, Maria; Ave, Maria;
Allahu Akbar!
Ave, Maria; Ave, Maria; Ave, Maria;
Allahu Akbar!

Nearer my God to Thee, nearer my God to Thee.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war.
Nearer my God to Thee, nearer my God to Thee.
Onward, Christian soldiers, marching as to war.

Hare! Hare Krishna!
Hare Krishna, Hare Krishna,
Krishna, Krishna, Hare, Hare
Hare Rama, Hare Rama,
Rama, Rama, Hare, Hare,

Allelu! Allelu!
Kyrie Eleison,
Ommmmmmmm.

I don't know where I found these lyrics. Possibly on one of the Usenet newsgroups rec.music.folk or rec.music.filk, could be 30 years ago.

Track 17 of https://archive.org/details/filk_ovff_concert_1 is Murray Porath singing it at the 1984 Ohio Valley Filk Festival concert, but with very different lyrics from what I've posted here.

No, though it has pretty much the same tune as "Spanish Lady", Dublin City", etc. The ni Dhomnail sisters, whose name I always mis-spell, use my chorus only at the end of their "Spanish Lady".

Someone at the Somerville Armory when we were having pub sings inside there told me my song was supposed to have the last verse I used so I've used it ever since.

I know another song with much the same lyrics but sung to a variant of the "Willow Garden" tune.

Please use the titles I gave in my earlier post.

Joe asked me to put the name of the original version of "In Thee is Gladness" in the chat that Monday, but there was something wrong with my Chat and it wouldn't take typing.

The original version is called L'Innamorato,' and the composer was the Italian Giovanni Gastoldi, died 1622.

I read that the tune to "An Seanduine Doite" is "The Campbells Are Coming!".

How you feel about this depends on how you feel about the Campbells.
