Hi I'm looking for the tune to a song I have heard. Alos would anyone be able to help with the name of the song or traditional irish tunes its based on, or further verses. The chorus goes something like this.

Johnny get up from the fire get up And give the man a sate, Don't you know he's.....something..something And he's courting your sister Kate, He's a house and...something..... And maybe a wee bit of land Won;t you get up out of that You impudent {ignorant? } brat And let Mister Maguire sit down. Many thanks

Mike

Surprised not to be able to find an answer to this on Mudcat, maybe I can't navigate... Anyway it's an old Bridie Gallagher song

Me name is Mick Maguire & I'll quickly tell to you
Of a woman I admire, she is Katie Donohue
She's fair, and fat, and 40, and believe me when I say
Every time that I come up to the house I can hear her mother say

"Johnny, get UP from the fire, get UP ! And give the man a sate
Can't you see ity's Mr Maguire, and he's courtin your sister Kate
You know very well he owns a farm a we bit out of the town
Will ye get UP outta that. ye impudent brat !
And let Mr Maguire sit down ? (then Lilt the last 2 lines of verse -Deedle Di-dle diddly -i etc)

The first time that I met her was a dance in Tarramagee,
When I asked her if she'd kindly step around the floor with me
I asked if I could see her home, as I was going her way
And as soon as I came near the house I could hear her mother say
(Chorus)
Well, now that we are married, sure the mother's changed her mind
Ever since I spent the legacy me uncle left behind
She doesn't have the dacency to give me the time of day
Every time I come up to the house I can hear the oul' witch say

"Johnny come up to the fire, come UP - you're sittin in the draught !
Sure, it's only ould Maguire, and you know he drives me daft...
I don't know what gets into him, for he's always on the tear
You just sit where you are and never you dar to give ould Maguire the chee-air !
