Subject: RE: Help: Shule Aroon: sell my rock, rod, reel
The chorus is pronounced (roughly, and I'm just adding the other lines to that Noreen phoneticised:

Shule, shule, shule, aroon,
Shule guh sucker oggus shule guh kewn,
Shule guh durrus oggus aylig lyumm,
Iss guh dayren thoo, a voorneen, slawn.
