lyrics

* Step it gaily, off we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and row and row
All for Mairi's wedding.

Over hillways up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the sheiling through the town
All for sake of Mairi.

Cheeks as bright as rowans are
Brighter far than many a star,
Fairest of them all by far
Tis my darlin' Mairi.

Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her creel,
Plenty bonny bairns as weel
That's the toast for Mairi.
