Doreen wrote asking for help with the lyrics and origin of a song about a fairy. Here’s her email:
I know (or think I remember accurately) most of the lyrics. I am trying to find the country of origin which I believe is Ireland or Scotland. Here is the song…
As Katie one night, by sunset light, was busy spinning her thread.
‘Twas Tim came by with a laugh in his eye
And now listen to what he said,
“I had a fling with a fairy queen……
If you’ll come with me…….. you’ll see,
You’ll see that I’m the lad the fairies have had to tea, to tea.”
There’s more. Can anyone help? Thanks for your help and your patience.
If anyone can help with the rest of the lyrics or if you know where it’s from, please comment below.
Thanks in advance!
