Lyrics
Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Over hillways, up and down
Myrtle green and bracken brown
Past the sheilings through the town
All for the sake of marie

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Red her cheeks as rowan's are
Bright her eyes as any star
Fairest of them all by far
Is our darlin' marie

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Plenty herring, plenty meal
Plenty peat to fill her kreel
Plenty bonnie bairns as well
That's the toast for Marie

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel And toe for toe
Arm and arm And row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Na-na-na-na-na
Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding

Na-na-na-na-na
Step we gaily on we go
Heel for heel and toe for toe
Arm and arm and row and row
All for Marie's wedding
