[from Manx Ballads, 1896]




HIE ad rish Skeeylley Breeshey,
As hie ad rish Skeeyll Andrase;
Agh ayns Yurby va yn daunse,
As ayns-shen haink, ad lurg-ooilloo.

Charles Moore, Ballaradcliffe,
As Kerry Clugaash marish,
Arther beg Moldera,
As Harry Clark voish Doolish.


THEY went to Kirk Bride,
And they went to Kirk Andreas,
But in Jurby was the dance,
And there they came at last.

Charles Moore, Ballaradcliffe,
And Kate Clucas with him,
Little Arthur Mylrea,
And Harry Clark from Douglas.
