Irish Song Lyrics - Mary of the Curling HairAuthor: trad

1. My Mary of the curling hair, The laughing teeth, and bashful air, Our bridal morn is dawning fair, With blushes in the skies. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan (these two lines mean: Go! my dear girl; go with strenth and fortitude) My love! my pearl! My own dear girl! My mountain maid arise! 2. Wake, linnet of the osier grove! Wake, trembling, stainless, virgin dove! Wake, nestling of a parent's love! Let Moran see thine eyes. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan 3. I am no stranger, proud and gay, To win thee from thy home away, And find thee, for a distant day, A theme for wasting sighs. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan 4. But we were known from infancy, Thy father's hearth was home to me, No selfish love was mine for thee, Unholy and unwise. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan 5. And yet, (to see what Love can do!) Though calm my hope has burned, and true, My cheek is pale and worn for you, And sunken are mine eyes! suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan 6. But soon my love shall be my bride, And happy by our own fire-side, My veins shall feel the rosy tide, That lingering Hope denies. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan 7. My Mary of the curling hair, The laughing teeth and bashful air, Our bridal morn is dawning fair, With blushes in the skies. suil suil suil a Gra suil, go socair and suil to buan My love! my pearl! My own dear girl! My mountain maid, arise!
