Dancing In Kyle

Melody -

When the sun has gone down on the dark western islands
Our work is all done for a while.
Then we gather together whatever the weather
And drive to the dancing in Kyle
Now there's Marie and Duncan and Morag and Callum
Fiona and Kenna and Dawn
And were driving from Dornie Glenelg and Killinen
And laughing as we race along.

2. Now Rory will sing of the beauties of Isley
And Seamus of Stornaway's isle
And the finest of dancers will show us the lancers
When we go to the dancing in Kyle
Theres the swirl o the kilt and the skirl o the pipes
And Ken Masons accordion band
And its ah for the eightsome and ah for the jig
And the dashing white seargent is grand.

3. Soon the dawn will be showing the great mountains glowing
And we must drive many a mile
But we'll leave Inverinate and Ardelve and Dornie
Next time that there's dancing in Kyle
And we'll laugh and we'll sing and we'll hueoch and we'll swing
And we'll set to our partners in style
For there's nothing so grand in the whole of the land
As to drive to the dancing in Kyle.
