W:I'm a decent married woman, my name is Mrs. Magee,
W:I'm a native of this County Down convenient to Donaghadee,
W:I had a faithful husband, oh whom I liked so fine,
W:But now he's gone and left me and I'm nearly out of my mind.
W:
W:Chorus:
W:He wears a pair of laceless shoes, knickers of corduroy,
W:He's a swallowtail coat and waistcoat, he's only got one eye,
W:His hair and whiskers both are black, he wears a castor hat,
W:And can anyone kindly tell me, have you seen my darling Pat?
W:
W:On the morning that we parted, the tears rolled in his eye,
W:Saying "Biddy dear, I'm going away my fortune for to try.
W:They say the harvest is pretty good in Scotland this year,
W:So Biddy dear, I'll send you the price of a pint, don't you be feared."
W:
W:Chorus
W:
W:"If I can find a postbox, as soon as I arrive,
W:You may expect a letter as sure as I'm alive."
W:But my Pat's away three months today and he's left me in a stew,
W:Since I lost my darling husband, oh what am I to do?
W:
W:Chorus
