W:Love will you marry me, marry me, marry me,
W:love will you marry me, and take me out of danger?
W:No I won't marry you, marry you, marry you,
W:no I won't marry you, for why you are a stranger.
W:Why didn't you tell me so, why didn't you tell me so,
W:why didn't you tell me so, before you did the harm?
W:What harm did I do, what harm did I do,
W:what harm did I do, but roll you in my arms?
W:
W:Love will you marry me, marry me, marry me,
W:love will you marry me, and take me out of danger?
W:No I won't marry you, marry you, marry you,
W:no I won't marry you, for why you are a stranger.
W:Why didn't you tell me so, why didn't you tell me so,
W:why didn't you tell me so, what in the world delayed you?
W:How could I tell you so, how could I tell you so,
W:for if I would have told you then I surely couldn't have gained you.
W:
W:Who'll mend my socks and shirts, my socks and shirts, my socks and shirts,
W:Who'll mend my socks and shirts and feed me in the morning?
W:I won't mend your socks nor shirts, your socks nor shirts, your socks nor shirts,
W:I won't mend your socks nor shirts nor feed you in the morning.
W:Why didn't you tell me that, tell me that, tell me that,
W:Why didn't you tell me that before I sold the farm.
W:I didn't tell you that, tell you that, tell you that,
W:I didn't tell you that for fear you'd do me harm.
W:
W:What on earth will happen me, happen me, happen me,
W:What on earth will happen me, I thought you were my darlin'.
W:Who cares what happens ya, happens ya, happens ya,
W:Who cares what happens ya, you never were my darlin'.

W:Chorus:
W:Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead,
W:Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney.
W:More say he rose again, more say he rose again,
W:more say he rose again, and joined the British army.
W:
W:Feed the pigs and milk the cow, milk the cow, milk the cow,
W:Feed the pigs and milk the cow, so early in the morning.
W:Tuck your leg up, Paddy, dear. Paddy, dear, I'm over here!
W:Tuck your leg up, Paddy dear, It's time to stop your yawning
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:Katie, she is tall and thin, tall and thin, tall and thin.
W:Katie, she is tall and thin. She likes a drop of brandy.
W:Drinks it in the bed at night, drinks it in the bed at night,
W:drinks it in the bed at night, it makes her nice and randy.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:My man is six foot tall, six foot tall, six foot tall,
W:My man is six foot tall, he likes his sugar candy.
W:Goes to bed at six o'clock, goes to bed at six o'clock,
W:goes to bed at six o'clock, he's lazy, fat and dandy.
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:My wife, she has a hairy thing, a hairy thing, a hairy thing.
W:My wife, she has a hairy thing, she showed it to me Sunday.
W:She bought it in the furrier shop, bought it in the furrier shop,
W:bought it in the furrier shop, it's going back on Monday.
W:
W:Chorus
