LindsayInWales Folklore: Dashing White Sargeant - dance origins? (10) RE: Folklore: Dashing White Sargeant - dance origins? 28 Apr 04

We used to sing it in primary school:

Now the fiddler's ready let us all begin
To step it out and step it in
To the merry music of the violin
We'll dance the hours away.

I can't remember the first couple of lines of the chorus, only that they included people's names, it finished up

.........and Calum and Flora and Moll
Dance, dance, dance dance
Dance away the hours together
Dance till dawn be in the sky
What care you and what care I?
Our hearts are beating, spirits high
We'll dance, dance, dance.
