Song lyrics
All:
Tonight we're going to meet some lads,
As girls who dressed up gaily,
And we'll be dancing till the dawn,
We're going to the Céili.

The lads they come from miles around,
From Ennis and Kilmaley,
To show us all their fancy steps,
We're going to the Céili.

They're playing tunes on everything,
From pipes to ukulele,
It sounds so good you can't sit down,
We're dancing at the Céili.

Lisa:
All the boys we love so well,
So handsome, young and charming,
They're in New York and Boston, now,
They should be home here farming,
My own true love has failed away,
To be an endless rover,
Cause times are tough and he must leave,
To start a new life over.

He writes me letter every week,
To say how much he's slavin',
And he promises that he'll be back,
Before the hay needs savin',
But it's hard to love somebody,
That you're not in touch with daily,
So I'm looking for somebody new,
Tonight down at the Céili.

The winter nights are long and hard,
And the time goes by so slowly,
I wish my true love he was here,
And in his arm's I'd go,
He'd whisper tender words of love to me,
And kiss my lips so sweetly,
And quickly I'd surrender to his manly charms completely.

All:
He writes me letter every week,
To say how much he's slavin',
And he promises that he'll be back,
Before the hay needs savin',
But it's hard to love somebody,
That you're not in touch with daily,
So I'm looking for somebody new,
Tonight down at the Céili.
So I'm looking for somebody new,
Tonight down at the Céili.

Orla:
I hope I meet someone tonight,
Who'll make my heart beat fast,
A handsome man with laughing eyes,
Who smiles as he walks past,
And when they play an old-time waltz,
He'll twirl me round the floor,
And promise me that I will be,
His girl forever more.

His girl forever more,
His girl forever more,
And promise me that I will be,
His girl forever more.

Meav:
I'm somewhat in a bother,
That is really quite alarming,
I have two lads pursing me,
And each of them is charming,
One of them is dark and poor,
One fair with lots of money,
I don't know which one to choose,
The flower or the honey.

What on earth am I to do,
It's driving me half crazy,
Tonight I'll make my mind up,
When I see them at the Céili.

To be a poor man's wife,
Will be a life of washin' dishes,
While a rich man's wife will surely have,
Great luxury and riches.
In comfort how I know,
It wouldn't be to hard to wallow,
And being poor is not much fun,
Which one should I follow?

What on earth am I to do,
It's driving me half crazy,
Tonight I'll make my mind up,
When I see them at the Céili.

Lisa:
I've been lucky I've found a lad who's handsome and a neighbor.

Orla:
And me I've met a decent man who's friendship I will savor.

Meav:
And me I've made my choice as well,
And in no way was it easy,
But I'd rather have a man for love,
Than be a rich man's lady.

All:
And that is how the story ends,
May true love never fail me,
We got ourselves three men tonight,
And we met them at the Céili.
