Manx Fairy Tales: The Blackbird Sings

Blackbird sings to the Inkeeper's pretty daughter:

Kione jiarg, kione jiarg
A pyrn doo, A pyrn doo,
Vel oo cheet? Vel oo cheet?
Skee fieau, skee fieau,
Lhondoo, Lhondoo,

Red head, red head,
Black apron, Black apron,
Are you coming? Are you coming?
Tired waiting, tired waiting,
Blackbird, Blackbird.
