I requested the lyrics and translation to English on my musicmail email list today, and Paulette Kirkey in Canada provided this. It was recorded by Mary O'Hara on "A Song For Ireland". Alice in Montana

AILIÚ ÉANAI
(as Gaeilge)

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Shiúlas an drúcht 's an ghrian ag éirí,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Sheólas mo bhó sa ghleanntán sléibhe
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Fuaireas rómham an táiliúir aerach,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Ag fuagháil cótamór de'n bhrédín
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Nach álainn é mo tháiliúir aerach,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú Éanai (as Béarla)
(Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai! is an untranslated yodelling
call pronounced
A-lee-oo eh-nee, a-lee-oo eh-ree)

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
I walked in the dew when the sun was rising,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
I drove my cow through the mountain valley,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
I met there the merry tailor,
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Sewing an overcoat made of tweed.
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!
Isn't my merry tailor a lovely man?
Ailiú éanai! Ailiú éarai!

You are entirely too quick for me. I came here to post these. Great song, eh?

this is one of a few songs which needs repair of its diacritical marks. I wonder, Alice, would you mind posting your song again?

yikes! how did that happen?
The first time I posted it, it did not look that way. So what do I do? not include the marks? What is the remedy, Philippa... keep in mind I am on a Mac.

Alice, if you post it again, it should be okay. When Mudcat was technically revamped earlier this year, all the letters with accent marks, umlauts and so on (letters not on the ordinary keyboard) were transmuted. New lyrics were appearing okay, but there was so much old stuff damaged that apparently somebody wisely changed the filter so that the previously archived lyrics were restored. Any lyrics added since then are appearing okay too, while the small number of lyrics added during the interval before the repair was done look funny (as you can see)
Although if you post exactly what you did before it should look alright, the safest thing to do is to use html codes in place of the accented letters. - in case the filter is changged again - I've been adding these to some of my more recent postings by using 'find' and 'replace' functions to change all the relevant letters (thus for example I can change all of the é s in a document in one fell swoop). I think the codes or a link to them are in the html thread, courtesy Joe offer as far as I recall.

ok, I'll have to work on this when I have more time to add the html to really fix it. In the mean time, if anyone else want to do it, here it is again.

Subject: diacritically yours
From: Philippa
Date: 30 Jul 99 - 03:04 PM

Thanks, Alice, it looks fine.
But as for using html as insurance :No, it's not in the html thread, but in using fadas on Irish vowels There are several suggestions. I do often use the chart for which Joe O provides a link at the fada thread. The things we do for Mudcat! Do you not have to use these codes for your own website?

Thanks, Philippa. No, I used early Pagemill software, and rarely have to use 'raw' html. It saves ALOT of time to use Pagemill, and anything that saves time is very useful to me. I'll trace that thread on fadas, since I know it will probably be needed again.

Subject: Diacritically yours???? Ampersand HTML tags
From: Joe Offer
Date: 31 Jul 99 - 02:16 PM

Hi, gang - be sure and use the "replace" function of your word processor when using a lot of HTML tags. Alice, if you had typed ampersand codes for all those letters in that song, the Men in the White Coats would be paying you a visit.
