Artist: Keith Harkin
Song: The Island

They say the skies of Lebanon are burning
Those mighty cedars bleeding in the heat
They're Показ pictures on the television
Women and children dying in the street
And we're still at it in our own place
Still trying to reach the future through the past
Still trying to carve tomorrow from a tombstone

But hey, don't listen to me
This wasn't meant to be no sad song
We've heard too much of that before
Right now I only want to be with you
Till the mornin' dew comes fallin'

And I want to take Ты to the island
Trace your footprints in the sand
And in the evening when the sun...

Song: Wichita Lineman

I am a путевой обходчик for the county.

Lookin' in the sun for another overload.

I hear Ты Пение in the wire.
I can hear Ты thru the whine.
And the Wichita Lineman,

I know I need a small vacation.
But it don't look like rain.
And if it snows that stretch down south,
won't ever stand the strain.

And I need Ты еще than want you.
And I want Ты for all time.
And the Wichita Lineman,
is still on the line.

240g self-raising flour (about 2 cups)
240g sugar (1 1/2 cups to 1 1/2 cups)
240g овсяная каша, каша oats (about 3 cups) -- I used Quaker oatmeal
240g margarine (1 1/4 cup) -- I used масло, сливочное масло - no margarine in my refrigerator!
1 Tbsp golden syrup (you can order it on-line... I used light...

The Homes Of Donegal
(Sean Mc Bride/ arranged Paul Brady)

I've just dropped in to see Ты all
I'll only stay awhile
I want to hear how you're getting on
I want to hear Ты smile
I'm happy to be back again
And greet Ты big and small
For there's no place on earth just like
The homes of Donegal

I long to see your smiling children
Standing by the door
The kettle boiling on the hearth
As I walk up the floor
And then to see a welcome free
For travellers one and all
For your hearts are like your mountains
In the homes of Donegal

I'd like to stay along with Ты
And while away the night
With fairy...
