Irish word:  Hello  “Dia dhuit”


Irish Saying

The Way We Tell a Story  (Pat McCarty 1851- 1931)

Says I to him, I says, says I,

Says I to him, I says,

The thing, says I, I says to him,

Is just, says I, this ways.

I hev’, says I, a gret respeck

For you and for your breed,

And onything I could, I says,

I’d do, I wud indeed.

I don’t know any man, I says,

I’d do it for, says I,

As fast, I says, as for yoursel’,

That’s tellin’ ye no lie.

There’s nought, says I, I wudn’t do

To plase your feyther’s son,

But this, I says, ye see, says I,

I says, it can’t be done.



Try chanting with your class in appropriate dialect.
