Mairi Ruadh a’Dannsa A-Nochd

Back to song list

The title of the song means ‘Red-haired Mary will be dancing all night’.

Here are the lyrics (English Translation):

Red-haired Mary will be dancing tonight

Dancing until early morning

Red-haired Mary will be dancing tonight

When she hears the drum beating

   

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Slavish work, hard work

But when Friday comes ’round

Red-haired Mary will be dancing

   

You care nothing for bedtime, you care nothing for peace

The music in our souls and the music in our hearts

And we’ll follow closely through the streets of Portree

The footsteps of the band

   

Tune the pipes, tune the fiddle

A march and a reel and a lively tune

Down through the town we’ll go

And Red-haired Mary dancing

   

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday

Slavish work, hard work

But when Friday comes ’round

Red-haired Mary will be dancing
