Here's the lyrics with a translation. I was surprised to see mention of the Lotto in a trad song: Chorus (after each verse): A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu na bhaile A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu liom A mhuirnin o an dtiocfaidh tu na bhaile A mhuirnin o (Repeat) Bhi se thios i lar a' mhargaidh Dol se 's cheol se ar rith an lae Nuair a thainig an oiche gan pingin ina bhriste Is mairg nar ghlac me comhairle na mna Casadh orm e le heiri na greine An oganach gleoite go follain 's go beo Nuair a thog se a hata agus labhair se le gaire Thit me i ngra leis, chreid me go deo Bhi cnaipi airgid ar mo chota Is ribni sioda a bhfearr sa tir Slabhrai oir is clocha luachmhar Mheall me le saibhreas e go fior Ni rabhas ag a nduine ce'n phairt den tir e Labhair se go uasal soinneanta so Bhi 'n tiomba thart go raibh tiarna ina theaghlach Ni raibh se i bhfad bhi me geallta do Ta'n ceangal fada 's deacar a scaoileadh Bhfearr i bhfad a bheith cinnte do Nior ghlac se i bhfad gur bhris se mo chroi sa A leoga ni seo mo sceilin o A 'gur shiul se sios i lar a mhargaidh 'S cheannaigh se carda ar phunt no dho Bhi an tadh ina rith leis, bhain se an "lotto" Anois bheidh an chuideachta againn go deo Translation My darling love, will you come back home? My darling love, will you come with me? My darling love, will you come back home? My darling love He was down at the market He drank and sang all day long When night came and he hadn't a penny in his pocket Oh what a shame I didn't take the missus' advice I met him at sunrise A charming, healthy and lively young lad When he lifted his hat and spoke with a smile I fell in love with him, thought it would never end My coat had buttons of silver And the best silk ribbons in the country Golden chains and precious stones I truly enticed him with my glitter and gold No one knew from which part of the land he came He spoke nobly and with pleasant ease Rumor had it that there was a lord in his family It wasn't long 'til I was engaged to him The bond is long and difficult to untie It's much better to be sure of it* It didn't take long 'til he broke my heart Indeed this is not the story I'd prefer to be telling** But then he went back down to the market And bought a ticket for a pound or two Luck was on his side, he won the lottery Now we'll forever be living the good life *This might mean that the link to this nobleman was a very distant one, and that 'he' therefore was not rich - in fact quite poor; so she instantly regrets her engagement to him. **"A leoga" means "alas".

Is Being Gay Wrong? - YouTube
brentan comments on Jun 25, 2019:
Faeces has a lot to do with it. Sex in the urinary tract is accepted because it also leads to the womb and I guess urine is thought of as less offensive than faeces. I don't think this is the basis for Biblical prohibition. The thrust of Biblical law had to do with how they perceived the purpose of a thing. And pleasure didn't come into it. You had sex to have children. How do we rationalise these things for our time? We've recognised the hygiene issues and advised on protection. We've decided that sex is about love and pleasure as well as procreation. I think the last frontier is the issue of faeces. 'I've emptied my bowels and laid out the towels' does nothing to reduce homophobia. So is it wrong? I see humans as human animals so I don't have highfalutin ideas about how we should behave. From an evolutionary perspective, we may well be doing excellently in our progress. From the traditional moral perspective, homosexuality is a fallen practice brought about by worship of idols (Romans Chapter 1).

brentan comments on Jun 25, 2019:
I like the old idea of respecting people. I think it comes from the Biblical idea that there is a spark of divinity in everyone. It's probably not really respect, more attributing a basic value to people before anything is really known about them.

Possibly the greatest thought in opposition to the external God is William Blake's concept of God being internal, in man's imagination: I rest not from my great task! To open the Eternal Worlds, to open the immortal Eyes Of Man inwards into the Worlds of Thought: into Eternity Ever expanding in the Bosom of God, the Human Imagination. - Jerusalem, Plate 5, Lines 17b - 20.

brentan comments on Jun 22, 2019:
I think the mind is capable of believing in god because it has the ability to hope, to conceive of perfection, to aspire. My guess is it would be unusual, and maybe a sign of something not working well if a person couldn't conceive of the idea of god. That's where I think wiring comes into it. Believing might just be the externals affecting the wiring - where you're born etc. Not believing might just be not seeing the evidence to support belief.
[youtu.be] This is an intetesting take on religion.
brentan comments on Jun 22, 2019:
'What would it take us to get beyond that kind of solution to the real needs people have? That cuts to the heart of the matter. Socialism tried a secular alternative which was disastrous. Sam Harris says socialism wasn't really atheistic; he says it was religious in its psychology. Social democracy is well worth a try. It is a feature of Irish society. Real poverty is controlled well but it doesn't remedy the hole left in the spiritual lives of people. I wonder what it would really take.
