Subject: Lyr Req: Vin Garbutt Song - Hark as the bee hunts
From: Lil Dog Turpy
Date: 18 Feb 04 - 06:50 PM

I have been searching for the lyrics and tune for a Vin Garbutt song I heard a long time ago. The tune was a jig and the chorus was

Hark as the bee hunts for treasure
That's hid in the mountain of bloom
My shuttle goes buzzing with pleasure
To gather the gold from my loom

To achieve the jig effect, instructions for the chorus involved slapping your mouth to interrupt the flow of air while singing (you had so see it!) and so the chorus becomes

Hark as (slap) the (slap) bee (slap) hunts for treasure
That's hid (slap) in (slap) the (slap) mountain of bloom
My shu (slap) ttle (slap) goes (slap) buzzing with pleasure
To gather the gold from my loom

Does any one recollect this?

HARK AS THE BEE HUNTS FOR TREASURE
Trad slip jig. As sung by Vin Garbutt

CHORUS: Hark as the bee hunts for treasure
That's hid in the mountainy bloom
Me shuttle goes buzzing with pleasure
To gather me gold from me loom.

V1: 'Tis I can weave woolen and linen
The finest folk wear on their backs
So girl come give over your spinnin'
And wind up me wool and me flax. CHORUS

V2: Five years at the woolen and linen
I've laboured from morning to night
With a heart that beats heavy beginnin'
Is beating forever more light. CHORUS

V3: With guineas full up in me stockin' sole
Safe in the tick of me bed
It's soon that I'll rest without rocking
At Shrovetide with Willie I'll wed. CHORUS

If you could get to the Irish Club Auckland New Zealand by this time tomorrow you could ask him to play it yourself. But I guess that isn't much help.
Good-luck

He rarely refuses a request, but you will have to stop laughing at his intro long enough to learn the tune.....

Subject: Lyr Add: 'TIS I CAN WEAVE WOOLLEN AND LINEN
From: Jim Dixon
Date: 10 Mar 10 - 09:35 AM

The lyrics and musical notation for one voice and piano can be found in Songs of Old Ireland "the words by Alfred Perceval Graves, the music arranged by Charles Villiers Stanford" (London: Boosey & Co., 1882), page 99:


'TIS I CAN WEAVE WOOLLEN AND LINEN.

'Tis I can weave woollen and linen,
The finest folk wear on their backs,
So, girls, come give over your spinnin',
And wind off your wool and your flax!

CHORUS: For hark! as the bee hunts for treasure
That's hid in the mountainy bloom,
My shuttle goes buzzing with pleasure,
To gather my gold from the loom.

Five year at my woollen and linen
I've woven from mornin' to night,
With a heart that beat heavy beginnin',
But is leapin' for ever more light.

Now with guineas full up is the stockin',
Sewed safe in the tick of my bed,
And 'tis soon that I'll rest without rockin',
Since at Shrovetide with Willy I'll wed.
