I think the football team syllabification of jigs and reels
is a riot! Thanks for the giggle.
Along the same lines, has anyone else noticed how the names
of slip jigs often fit neatly into the slip jig's 9/8 time
signature? Some examples:
Pad-dy-Now Won't-You-Be EA-sy
Will-You-Come DOWN-To Lim-er-ick
BOYS-of Bal-ly-sa DARE
My-Mind-Will Ne-ver-Be AI-sy
HERE'S-Good Health-to-the PI-per
I'M-the Boy-for-Be witch-ing-Them
Pretty weird, huh? I could understand it if more of them
had lyrics (like the ROCK-y ROAD-to Dub-l-in). Any more examples
spring to mind out there?
