The Galway Piper is a traditional Irish folksong. The tune for this folksong was first printed in c. 1740.
When the wedding bells are ringing,
His the breath to lead the singing,
Then in jigs the folks go swinging,
What a splendid piper.
He will blow from eve to mourn,
Counting sleep a thing of scorn,
Old is he but not outworn,
Know you such a piper?
When he walks the highways pealing,
'Round his head the birds come wheeling,
Tim has carols worth the stealing,
Piping Tim of Galway.
Thrush and Linnet, finch and lark,
To each other twitter "Hark",
Soon they sing from light to dark,
Pipings learnt in Galway.
