CHANGING YOUR DEMEANOUR Traditional The Chieftains The Chieftains Changing Your Demeanour (3 versions) Original Lyrics (traditional): MO GHILE MEAR Seal go rabhas im' mhaighdean shéimh Anois im bhaintreach chaite thréith Mo chéile a' treabhadh na dtonn go tréan De bharr na gcnoc 's in imigéin. Curfá: 'Sé mo laoch mo ghile mear 'Sé mo Shaesar gile mear Suan ná séan ní bhfuaireas féin Ó luadh i gcein mo ghile mear. Bimse buan ar buairt gach ló Ag caoi go crua 's ag tuar na ndeor Ó scaoileadh uainn an buachaill beo 'S ná ríomhtar tuairisc uaidh mo bhrón. Curfá Ní haoibhinn cuach ba shuairc ar neoin Táid fiorchaoin uaisle ar uathadh spóirt Táid saoithe is suadha i mbuairt 's i mbrón Ó d'imigh uainn an buachaill beo. Curfá ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Modern Versions (2): Changing Your Demeanour (Kevin Conneff) Chieftains Here we are we've come to call With pipes and flutes and fiddles and all In case of death we've even brought a keener So, if you're glum and feeling down Just feel like us and act the clown And soon there'll be a change in your demeanour I put me money on a horse today for with the race he'd run away Or so a friend that's in the know he told me, Twenty lengths ahead at most, he proundly cantered past the post but, woe was me, he lost the bloomin' jockey! Now of all the places I have seen from China to the Caribbean, Are all across the goat compared to Ireland, >From Bally Castle to Tralie the Corup to the Liffy There's no where else on earth but like this island. In Hollywood I long to be, no, not the place across the sea, But in county Wickloe Ireland's lovely garden. Where no pretenders will you find but decent people warm and kind, and flocks of friendly sheep into the bargain. For your ills don't take a pill but take it down the road, the hills And listen to the larks lovely warbling, In the evening in the company with music in the key of E You'll be dancing Kerry sets until the morning ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Version Two: Changing Your Demeanour The Chieftains Kevin Conneff Here we are, we come to call, The pipes and flutes and fiddles and all. In case of death we even brought a keener. So if you're glum and feeling down, Just be like us and act the clown And soon there'll be a change in your demeanor. Rum tum dee doo-dle doe, Hub-a-dee die dee doo-dle do, Rum tum dee doo-dle doe dee doo dum. Rum tum dee doo-dle doe, Hub-a-dee die dee doo-dle do, Rum tum dee doo-dle doe dee doo dum. I put me money on a horse today For with the race he'd run away Or so a friend who's in and knows he told me Twenty lengths ahead at most He proudly cantered past the post. But woe is me, he tossed the blooming jockey Now all the places I have seen >From China to the Caribbean Are all across the goal compared to Ireland. >From Bally Castle to Traline The Corrib to the Liffey There's nowhere else on earth quite like this Island In Hollywood I long to be, Not on that place across the sea, But in County Wicklow, Ireland's lovely garden, Where no pretenders will you find But decent people roamin' and The fox and friendly sheep into the bargain. For your ills don't take a pill But take a tender o'er the hills, And listen to the lark's lovely warning In the evening in the company With music in the key of E You'll be dancing Kerry sets until the morning (Contributed by Aemoggs / thanks to Underdog - March 2008)
