Guest, Do you mean " She Moved Through The Fair". with stsrting lines of
Oh my young love said to me
My Mother won't mind
And my father won't slight you
For your lack of kind


If so look in the DT under " Next Market day" or as "She Moved Through the Fair". I am rushing out just now but will post the words later if you can't find them in the Dt and if this IS the osng you are after.

I'm sure there was a post on this song not so long ago.

Jimmy

Discussed a great many times here in the past. Simply type she moved through the fair into the "Lyrics & Knowledge Search" box at the top of the main Forum page, and start reading! The text in the DT is taken from a record and has been changed rather from the way Padráic Colum first published it in 1909.

Take a look at the classic Kipper Family parody while you are there. It's brilliant.

"Then she staggered homewards, one over the eight,
And like the swan in the evening she fell into the lake."

How is it that some threads are preceded by a useful list of related threads but others (eg this one) are not?

In case you're not too familiar with the cafe, guest, just click here and you will be taken to a thread about the song which is preceded by just such a list of other, related threads. You'll be amazed at how many answers there are to an apparently simple question.

I believe the links are added manually. Give them time, they'll appear.

Since this thread does not have the correct title of the song, and since this thread has no actual discussion of the song itself, please post any additional discussion in one of the other threads. Thanks.
