Tune of the Day: What's That to Any One
Traditional Irish jig
This Irish jig is taken from O'Neill 1922 collection Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody. According to Francis O'Neill, the air had previously appeared in Scottish composer Robert Archibald Smith's Irish Minstrel (1824), a volume of songs set to traditional Irish airs.
I spend what I have and I save what I owe,
And what's that to anyone, whether or no?
