Track Name: Parting Glass arranged Theodoratus
in case you would like to sing along-
It's how could I gie you the partin' kiss,
Or part from your sweet Company?
I'm sure my very heart would break,
Were I to take my leave o' thee.
But this is my departing night,
And the morn's the day I'm goin' awa,
I'm sure my comrades will be sad,
My rivals glad when I'm awa.
Säe it's ance gweed nicht and twice gweed nicht,
Gweed nicht and joy be wi' ye a';
For I mean to mend my morals yet,
Gweed nicht and joy be wi' ye a'.

Track Name: mia theodoratus - Lagan Love-Hindustani remix
Again, lyrics if you want to use this in a Karaoke Bar

Where Lagan stream sings lullaby
There blows a lily fair
The twilight gleam is in hereye
The night is on her hair
And like alove-sick lennan-shee
She has my heart in thrall
Nor life I owe nor liberty
For love is lord of all.

Her father sails a running-barge
'Twixt Leamh-beag and The Druim;
And on the lonely river-marge
She clears his hearth for him.
When she was only fairy-high
Her gentle mother died;
But dew-Love keeps her memory
Green on the Lagan side.

And often when the beetle's horn
Hath lulled the eve to sleep
I steal unto her shieling lorn
And thru the dooring peep.
There on the cricket's singing stone,
She spares the bogwood fire,
And hums in sad sweet undertone
The songs of heart's desire

Her welcome, like her love for me,
Is from her heart within:
Her warm kiss is felicity
That knows no taint of sin.
And, when I stir my foot to go,
'Tis leaving Love and light
To feel the wind of longing blow
From out the dark of night.

Where Lagan stream sings lullaby
There blows a lily fair
The twilight gleam is in her eye
The night is on her hair
And like a love-sick lennan-shee
She has my heart in thrall
Nor life I owe nor liberty
For love is lord of all.
