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 hill-ways, up and down,
Myrtle green and bracken brown,
Past the shielings (a rough shelter) 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 creel.
Plenty bonnie bairns (a child) as well,
That's the toast for Marie.
