This is on the Turning of the Year album, but I don't think we have the lyrics posted. Also known as "Girls' Night Out."

AWAY YE MERRY LASSES
(Georje Holper)

I told me mum I was goin' out
She asked what I was all about
I asked if I could take the broom
I'm going to meet the girls
Oh, the moon is wax tonight
And don't ya like the fellas?
I prefer the girls tonight
I'm goin' to ride the wind

CHORUS
'Cause it's the girls' night out
Away ye merry lassies
Get your brooms, get 'em out
We'll ride the wind tonight
Oh it's the girls' night out
Away ye merry lassies
Get your brooms, get 'em out
We'll ride the wind tonight

My sister is so bold and free
She asked if she could come with me
I saw her up above the trees
A-goin' to ride the wind
Oh, the moon is wax tonight
And don't ya like the fellas?
I prefer the girls tonight
I'm goin' to ride the wind

As we were going out the gate
We met our dear old mother
Ridin' a broom and hummin' a tune
A-goin' to meet the girls*
Oh, the moon is wax tonight
And don't ya like the fellas?
I prefer the girls tonight
I'm goin' to ride the wind


* (or ride the wind)

Also on At the Turning of the Year album by Priscilla Herdman, Anne Hills, and Cindy Mangsen, as "Away Ye Merry Lassies" with this third verse:

    As we were going out the gate
    We saw my dear old mother
    Ridin' a broom and hummin' a tune
    A-goin' to meet the girls
    Oh, the moon is wax tonight
    And don't ya like the fellas?
    I prefer the girls tonight
    I'm goin' to ride the wind
