The tune of this song is very old. There was a legend that if you heard a girl singing it, you'd have good luck. The Irish lyrics are probably around 300 years old, the English only 200.

Good song , not well known to me. Interestingly the English name Jane, which has been trending in this thread, is the equivalent of the Irish Gaelic name Sinead . It means God is gracious. English speakers generally find that Irish names are difficult to pronounce. This one is shin aid .

300 years ago , if an Irish girl had a cow to milk, she was damn lucky herself. And probably happy enough to sing about it. ;)
