W:I went to the fair of Bellaghy,
W:I bought a wee swag of a pig,
W:I gathered it up in my arms,
W:and danced the swaggering jig.
W:And it's high to the top of the heather,
W:and high to the but of the sprig,
W:and high to the bonnie wee lassie
W:who danced the swaggering jig.

W:As I went to the fair of Bellaghy,
W:I bought a wee slip of a pig,
W:and being down by the poor house,
W:I whistled the swaggering jig.
W:And it's high to the cups and the saucers,
W:and high to the butter and bread,
W:and high to the bonnie wee lassie
W:who danced the swaggering jig.
W:
W:I being down by the poor house,
W:I whistled so loud and so shrill,
W:I made all the fairies to tremble
W:that lived around Corcoran's hill.
W:And it's high to the top of the heather
W:and high to the but of the sprig,
W:and high to the bonnie wee lassie
W:who danced the swaggering jig.
