Align:    
  • The spinningwheel : to eilly and teesa in philly
  • Mellow the moonlight to shine is beginning
  • Close to the window yound eileen is spinning
  • Bent over the fire her blind grandmother sitting
  • Is crooning and moaning and drowsily knitting
  • Eileen achara I hear someone tapping
  • tis the ivy dear mother against the glass flapping
  • Eilly I surely hear somebody sighing
  • tis the sound mother dear of the summer winds dying
  • (chorus)
  • Merrily, cheerily, noiselessly whirring
  • Swings the wheel, spins the wheel while the foots stirring
  • Sprightly and brightly and airily ringing
  • Thrilss the sweet voice of the young maiden singing
  • Whats that noise I hear at the window I wonder
  • tis the little birds chirping the holly bush under
  • What makes you be shovin and moving your stool on
  • And singing all wrong that old song of the coolin
  • Theres a form at the casement the form of her true love
  • And he whispers with face bent Im waiting for you love
  • Get up on your stool through the lattice step lightly
  • Well rove in the grove while the moons shining brightly
  • (chorus)
  • The maid shakes her head on her lips lays her fingers
  • Steals up from her seat longs to go and yet lingers
  • A frightened glance turns to her drowsy grandmother
  • Puts one foot on the stool spins the wheel with the other
  • Lazily, easily swings now the wheel round
  • Slowly and lowly is heard now the reels sound
  • Noisless and light to the lattice above
  • The maid steps then leap to the arms of her lover
  • (chorus)
  • Slower and slower and slower the wheel swings
  • Lower and lower and lower the reel rings
  • Ere the reel and the wheel stopped there ringing and moving
  • Through the grove the young lovers by moonlight are roving
