GO ON BOYS AND GIVE A TUNE (Siudaibh 'illean, Gabhaibh 'm Port). AKA and see "Cawdor Fair," "Hawthorne Tree of Cawdor (The)." The puirt-a-beul or 'mouth music' words appear in Eilean Fraoich: Lewis Gaelic Songs and Melodies (1938, 1982).

Siùdaibh 'illean gabhaibh 'm port,
Siùdaibh 'illean dannsaibh,
Siùdaibh 'illean gabhaibh 'm port,
Is mise bean na bainnse.

Go on boys, give us a tune,
Go on boys, dance,
Go on boys, give us a tune,
I'm the bride.
