GAELIC STORM


Scalliwag Lyrics

Come away, Come away
With the traveling show
Come away with the
Raggle-taggle gypsy oh!
We'll raggle-taggle here
We'll raggle-taggle there
Raggle up and down
Taggle everywhere.

From the north
From the south
From the east
From the west
Well the sky is our roof
And the road is our rest
No one to say 'yes'
No one to say 'no'
Run free with the
Raggle-taggle gypsy oh!

They locked you in a tower
And threw away the key
But this tower's no match
For a wag like me
I'll be sneaking through your gate
I'll be peaking round the corner
Well I've come to take your daughter
Don't you say I didn't warn ya

I'll be bringing you a fiddle
I'll be singing you a song
We'll fiddle, sing, sing, fiddle all day long.

In the halls and the walls
They will her us sing and say
"Whack fol the diddle diddle die diddle day"

Come on and wade, way out into the water with me, we're drowning on dry land.
Come on and wade way out into the water with me... Jump in and take my hand.

I'll be rapping at your window
I'll be knocking at your door
I'll be tip tippy tapping, tippy tapping on the floor
With me fine silk britches
And a feather in me hat
If I run into your father
Then I'll stop and have a chat!
Cutting through your garden
On the way to rendezvous
And the owls in the trees are hooting "who are you?"
And the mice and the cats
And the spiders and the bats
We're dancing 'round the kitchen
Like a pack of acrobats

Run away, Run away with the traveling show
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!
Run away, Run away with the traveling show
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!
Run away, Run away with the traveling show
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!
Run away, Run away with the traveling show
Run away with the rambling gypsy oh!

Come on and wade, way out into the water with me
We're drowning on dry land
Come on and wade way out into the water with me... Jump in and take my hand.

A roving and a running and a riding on the sea
And everywhere we go as happy as can be
All the mountains and the valleys
And the rivers and the streams
All the lovely places that you've seen in your dreams
I'll give you the heavens
The stars in the sky, every wooded creature
Every bird and butterfly
I've never had a fortune
Not a penny will you find
You're my one and only treasure
You can leave all the rest behind.

Come on and wade way out into the water with me
We're drowning on dry land.
Come on and wade way out into the water with me...
