After watching the Orinoco Flow video for the thousanth time, I`m still trying to figure out what Lisa,Meav, and Orla are saying . It seems like it should be "sail,sail" but to me it sounds like either "tail,tail" or "dail, dail".Sounds the same to me on the CD,too.I`ve checked out CW LYRICS but it doesn`t include the part where the girls are saying it.Any ideas?

Found these lyrics on the web -

Artist: Celtic Woman
Song: Orinoco Flow

Let me sail, let me sail
Let the Orinoco Flow
Let me reach, let me beach
On the shores of Tripoli
Let me sail, let me sail
Let me crash upon your shore
Let me reach, let me beach
Far beyond the Yellow Sea

De, de
De, de
De, de
De, de
De, de

Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away

From Bissau to Palau
In the shade of Avalon
From Fiji to Tiree
And the Isles of Ebony
From Peru to Cebu
Feel the power of Babylon
From Bali to Cali
Far beneath the Coral Sea

De, de
De, de
De, de
De, de
De, de

Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away

From the North to the South
Ebudæ unto Khartoum
From the deep sea of clouds
To the island of the moon
Carry me on the waves to the land I've never been
Carry me on the waves to the lands I've never seen
We can sail, we can sail
With the Orinoco Flow
We can sail, we can sail (sail away, sail away)

We can steer, we can near
With Rob Dickins at the wheel
We can sigh, say goodbye
Ross and its dependency
We can sail, we can sail (sail away, sail away, sail away)

We can reach, we can beach
On the shores of Tripoli,
We can sail, we can sail (sail away, sail away, sail away)

From Bali to Cali
Far beneath the Coral Sea
We can sail, we can sail (sail away, sail away, sail away)

We can sail, we can sail (sail away, sail away, sail away)

Sail away, sail away, sail away
Sail away, sail away, sail away

Thanks for the info. That answers my question.So it`s "de,de" that they`re saying, I even trying watching Meav`s mouth and it sure looks like"de,de".I knew it just didn`t look like"sail,sail".  It wasen`t until last week that I found out that the Spanish Lady lyrics were"Whack for the toora loora laddy".I had thought all along they were saying "Watch for the toora loora lady".Thanks again.
