W:Step we gaily on we go, heel for heel and toe for toe
W:Arm in arm and row on row, All for Mairi's wedding.
W:Over hillways up and down, myrtle green and bracken brown
W:Past the shieling through the town, all for sake of Mairi.
W:Red her cheeks as rowans are, bright her eye as any star
W:Fairest of them all by far, is our darlin' Mairi.
W:Plenty herring, plenty meal, plenty peat to fill her creel
W:Plenty bonny bairns as weel, that's the toast for Mairi.
