GUEST,Tim Lyr Req: songs that speak of horses or mules (55* d) Lyr Add: BODACHAN CHA PHOS MI (from Julie Fowlis) 10 Dec 10

Julie Fowlis - Bodachan cha phòs mi

In the line, And horses for cows.

Bodachan cha phòs mi

'S na hóró laoi leó
Seinn óro nàilibh
'S na hóró laoi leó

Seann duine cha ghabh cha ghabh mi
Bidh e fada 'g èirigh
Fada dol 'na eudach
Fada fada ri cuir uime
Cha ghabh mise ludar bodaich
Cha tèid e mach gun am bata
Cha tig e steach gun an casda
Saoilidh e gur geòidh na cearcan
Saoilidh e gur caoraich clachan
Saoilidh e gur bò na h-eachaibh.

I shan't marry an old man

'S na hóró laoi leó
Seinn óro nàilibh
'S na hóró laoi leó

An old man, I will definitely not have
He is late to rise
Takes a long time to dress
A long, long time to get his clothes on
I shan't have a clumsy old man
He can't go out without a walking stick
He can't come in without a cough
He mistakes hens for geese
He mistakes stones for sheep
And horses for cows.
