From: alison
Date: 16 Mar 00 - 07:39 AM

Top o' the morning to youse all...

it's 20 minutes to St Pat's here in Oz..... so I thought I'd get the place set up......

there's gallons of vile black stuff .... the jello pit is full of green jello... (with a few mandarin chunks to keep everyone happy)........

plenty of room on stage for the band, (any takers???? bags I play whistle)......... enough room for some step dancing.....

Big Mick is in the kitchen whipping up a big pot of champ..... god knows where he found all those spuds.. and I really don't want to know.

Only Irish songs today people.. or it'll be the shilleleagh (how the hell do you spell that anyway?) for you.......

I'll start the songs...

"then success to bold St Patrick's fist , he was a saint so clever
he gave the snakes an awful twist and banished them forever."

slainte

alison

P.S. there'll be a prize for the best leprechaun outfit....

I'll bring a couple of cases of Black Bushmills and drink a toast to all hands today; cause I'm bloody working midnights on St Patrick's day. Well with the Irish breakfast I plan, my diet is shot to hell. THE HILLS OF CONNEMARA...Yours, Aye. Dave

Gather up the pots and the old tin can
The mash, the corn, the barley and the bran
Run like the devil from the excise man
Keep the smoke from rising Barney

Swing to the left and swing to the right
The Excise men will dance all night
Drinking up the tay till the broad daylight
In the hills of Connemara

RPT 1st verse as chorus

A gallon for the Butcher a quart for Tom
A bottle for poor old father John
To help the poor old dear along
In the hills of Connemara

Chorus

Stand your ground it is too late
The Excise men are at the gate
Glory be to Paddy, they're drinking it Nate
In the hills of Connemara

Chorus

I'll join you all today, since I'll be serving beer instead of partaking in it on the day itself (at the Irish Embassy!!)

An easy one for early in the day...

Do you love an apple?
Do you love a pear?
Do you love a laddie with curley brown hair?
Oh still, I love him,
I can't deny him
I'll be with him wherever he goes

Before I got married, I'd sport and I'd play
But now the cradle, it gets in me way...

He stood on the corner, a fag in his mouth
Two hands in his pocket, he whistled me out

Before I got married, I wore a black shawl
But since I got married I wear bugger all

Carry on!

alison and Mick, it's great to be here in the tavern again with you all... it's been a long time! I've got my latest set of lyrics to memorize taped to my shower wall... Terence's Farewell To Kathleen

So, my Kathleen, you're going to leave me
All alone by myself in this place,
But I'm sure that you'll never deceive me,
Oh, no, if there's truth in that face.
Though England's a beautiful country,
Full of illigant boys, oh, what then--
You'ld never forget your poor Terence,
You'll come back to old Ireland again.

So, I've come back to the old Mudcat again. Lots of fresh new faces around.

How do you like this costume idea? No, that's not me in the photo, that's Eileen Martin. My outfit's green, of course, I wouldn't have a purple one on St. Patrick's day. I can't decide. Should I go with the riverdance look or not?

Subject: Lyr Add: THE KNIGHT AND THE UNICORN
From: MMario
Date: 16 Mar 00 - 11:11 AM

*envious glance* must be nice to be able to GET gigs....*sigh*

This is by a SCAdian by the name of Bertram of Bearington, whom I have been trying to track down for a number of years. maybe this will scare him up....

THE KNIGHT AND THE UNICORN
by Bertram of Bearington

There was a knight, a lusty knight, a randy knight was he,
He had eleven mistresses and bastards thirty-three...
He indulged in ev'ry excess, in each licentious whim,
So you should have seen his jaw drop when a unicorn chose him!

Please go away my gold-maned friend, be gone I do declare!
My reputation will be shot with all the ladies fair.
I fear you've got the wrong man, of my friend with coat so fine...
I haven't been a virgin since I reached the age of nine!

I've led a very lusty life, summer winter fall or spring
I have no peers in "swords-manship", I will rut with anything!
So go away fair unicorn, if not I'll be grief-stricken --
The rampant cock upon my shield will turn into a chicken!

The ladies will reject me thinking I'm just bravado.
There must be twenty other knights with chastity their motto.
So go away fair unicorn, please leave me alone...
The ladies will not lay with me with you for chaperone!

Please go away my gold-maned friend, be gone and do not tarry.
You'll probably find the man you seek up in the monastery.
No wait, they're not the kind of monk who are celibately sleeping,
Instead of Mass and priestly vows, it's mistresses they're keeping!

The unicorn said not a word but with a soft "tap tap"
She curved her hooves around his legs, put her head upon his lap.
The knight looked in her deep brown eyes and said, "Why me? why you?"
Then the unicorn demurely said, "My lord, I'm horny too!"

Ok, the words! But I still feel a bit leery about putting lyrics in the songbook that ain't mine. Only the music is, but here you go:

The Wild Geese--The Wild Geese--'tis long since they flew
O'er the billowy ocean's bright bosom of blue;
For the foot of the false-hearted stranger had curst
The shores on whose fond breast they'd settled at first;
And they sought them a home afar off o'er the sea,
Where their pinions, at least, might me thainless and free.

CHORUS: (this part IS mine, can you tell?)

The Wild Geese flee
The Wild Geese flee
The Wild Gees flee across the sea
(2x)

The Wild Geese--The Wild Geese--sad, sad was the wail
That followed their flight on the easterly gale;
But the eyes that had wept o'er their vanishing track
Ne'er brightened to welcome the wanderers back;
The home of their youth was the land of the slave,
And they died on that shore far away o'er the wave.

The Wild Geese--The Wild Geese--their coming once more,
Was the long-cherished hope of that desolate shore,
For the loved ones behind knew it would yet be free,
If they flew on their white pinions back o'er the sea;
But vainly the hope of these loved ones burned,
The Wild Geese--the Wild Geese--they never returned.

The Wild Geese--the Wild Geese--hark! hear ye that cry?
And marked ye that white flock o'erspreading the sky?
Can ye not read the omen? Joy, joy to the slave,
And gladness and strength to the hearts of the brave;
For Wild Geese are coming at length o'er the sea,
And Eirinn, green Eirinn, once more shall be FREE!

(lyrics by Michael Joseph Barry, Music by Mbo)

and the sun on its raiment in splendour did shine
and the dew from his eye ofttimes wet it
It shines through the bog, through the muck and the mireland
and they called it the dear little shamrock of Ireland

Praise comes in confidently and stands the boys a round. Is that a gigbag she's got? No? But WHY is she carrying a bedroll slung over one shoulder? She wanders over to Sorcha, best bud Sorcha...

"Sorch," she says, "I still can't sleep. I give up. I'm here for the cure, and the consequences."

"It's about time, love," says wise and merry Sorcha. "What's your plan?"

"It's very simple. Would you be so kind as to drink me under the table, and then, just as I start to slide down to the floor, flip out the bedroll for me to land on... I'll sleep the night away dreaming dreams of Ireland, and all my friends around~~~ a bit of an Irish wake for the awake, while yet she lives, eh? And none the wiser! Is that not a fine plan?"

Lovely weather there near Cushendall, alison. Frankly I would trade that rain for what I have coming down outside my window right now.... SNOW!! Lots of it, thick and fast. There will be a scary drive over the mountain pass to Butte for the St. Patrick's Day festivities. It is not yet the 17th in Montana, although you have been enjoying the day for a long time in Australia.
I think I will stay here dry and warm in the Mudcat Tavern.

Well, I suppose for Saint Pats I can have an E-beer, without killing myself (the oul congenital liver trouble - remember?) So, what the hell, an E-Jamisons chaser and Larry is up on his feet, eyes closed, pipes caught by Genie before they land at his feet.

Oh Danial do not cross the moor, Oh Danial I bid ye stay
I pray ye not stray from my side, til round us breaks the day
For the sun has shed, her last long bloom, and the sea does loudly roar
Tonight he will surely meet his doom, who crosses yon, Grannemoor.

Oh father pray don't reprimand, for 'tis careless I have been,
all though its true, just as ye-ve said, that last night these sights were seen
the sun is gone, the night is long the sea does loudly roar,
but I must go and seek my lamb on the mighty grannemoor.

He took his lantern in his hand, and Dewey he left behind.
He crossed that barren stretch of land, his frighted lamb to find,
but as he struggled with the heath, the torrents down did fall,
and our young Daniel sank beneath the bog of Grannemoor.

His father when he heard the news, he bitterly did cry,
He says I've lost all mine to lose, and I'd rather now to die,
they took him in to comfort him, but he ner saw springtime more,
and they laid him down, in that cold ground, of the breast of grannemoor

And now the dewey people say, they still can hear the cries,
of their young comrade once so brave, who now in his cold bed lies
and when the kneel at night to pray, they say one ave more,
(Spoken with emphasis...)For the boy whose bones are bleaching white, neath the bog of Grannemoor.
,

Happy St. Pats all,
Larry

Just in time for StPaddy's, the bruises are turning green. What luck?
How's about a pint of the black throat oil?

I'll tell my mar when I go home
The boys won't leave the girls alone
Wreck my hair and stole my comb
But tha's all right til I go home
She is handsome, she is pretty
She is the belle of Dublin city
She is courted 1..2..3
Please can you tell me who is he
Albert Mooney says he loves her
Other boys are fighting for her
There up at the door with a ring of the bell
Saying Oh my true luv are you well?
Out she comes as white as snow
Rings on her fingers and bells on her toes........

jingling to her spot FAR from the projectiles in the jello-pit....Elle

THANK YOU SPAW AND ALL !! Remember I pay tonight ! Pass me my first pint please.. oh, what a heck is that black vile stuff ? is it edible or drinkable ? Let me try that too. I'll try anything, I'm so happy. OOps not just ANY thing, well.. you know.
For those who did'nt see the other thread, I passed an audition today for a place in the choir of the Wagnerian Association, a first-level group in Argentina and will be singing with the main orchestras and (possibly) with the Berliner Philarmonic during their visit.
But the "amazing" thing was that I performed Amazing Grace, following advice from Mudcatters, and that's a little exotic for them, and it delighted them.
OK .. now relax .. (berp) Where's the other pint ? Yes, Guinnes - or anyone you recommend.
Un calido (30 C degrees) abrazo - Andrés
