This is a light hearted song, made in jest, and a favorite at the Irish Roots Cafe. Friends will sometimes tease an engaged couple before the wedding, in anticipation of the grand event. It is all in good fun. Here they jest that the intended bride is old and rich, and the young man will drink up all her money. Surely, it ends up in a wedding where all live happily ever after !
This version of the song is sung in Irish (Gaeilge) by Mike O'Laughlin with Stevie Wilson Davis singing on the chorus. It can be found on the CD entitled "Irish Song: Traditional & Sean Nós". Lyrics below.
chorus:
'Sí do mhaimeo í, 'sí do mhaimeo í
'Sí do mhaimeo í cailleach an airgid
'Sí do mhaimeo í ó Bhail' Iorrais Mhóir í 'S
chuir-feadh sí cóistí 'r bhóithre Chois Fharraige
----------------------------------------­------------------
'Measann tú 'bpósfa, 'measann tú 'bpósfa
Measann tú 'bpósfa cailleach an airgid?
Tá 's a'm nach 'bpósfa, tá 's a'm nach 'bpósfa
Mar tá sé ró-óg 'gus dólfadh sé'n t-airgead
----------------------------------------­------------------
repeat chorus
----------------------------------------­------------------
'S gairid go 'bpósfa, 's gairid go 'bpósfa
'S gairid go 'bpósfa beirt ar an mbaile seo
'S gairid go 'bpósfa, 's gairid go 'bpósfa
Séan Shéamais Mhóir agus Máire Ní Chathasaigh
----------------------------------------­------------------
repeat chorus
----------------------------------------­---------------------
'bhFeicfeása 'n 'steam' 'ga'l siar Tóin Uí Loing'
'S na rothaí gh'l timpeall siar óna ceathrúnaí
Caithfeadh sí'nstiúir naoi n-uair'ar a cúl
S ní choinneodh sí siúl le cailleach an airgid
