Irish, Air and Jig (6/8 time). G Major. Standard tuning (fiddle). AABB (Darley& McCall): AA’BB’ (Moylan). Breathnach (1996) notes the tune as given in the Darley & McCall collection (originally called the Feis Ceoil Collection of Traditional Irish Music) is identical with that played nowadays, and he speculates that Séamus Ennis, who popularized it, or his father, picked it up from there. See also the related “Be Easy You Rogue,” “Stop You Rogue.” The Irish lyric begins:

Tá an coileach ag fógairt an lae
Tá an coileach ag fógairt an lae
Tá an mhuc ag an doras
ag iarraidh é a oscailt
Tá an coileach ag fógairt an lae
