Traditional

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe,
Arm in arm and row on row
All for Marie's wedding.

  1. Over the hill ways up and down
    Myrtle green and bracken brown,
    Past the shieldings through the town
    All for sake of Marie.
    Step we gaily on we go
    Heel for heel and toe for toe,
    Arm in arm and row on row
    All for Marie's wedding.
  2. Red of cheeks as rowans are
    Bright her eyes as any star,
    Fairest oí them all by far
    Is our darling Marie.
    Step we gaily on we go
    Heel for heel and toe for toe,
    Arm in arm and row on row
    All for Marie's wedding.
  3. Plenty herring, plenty meal,
    Peat to fill a muckle creel,
    Plenty bonny bairns as weel,
    Thatís our toast for Marie.
    Step we gaily on we go
    Heel for heel and toe for toe,
    Arm in arm and row on row
    All for Marie's wedding.
