W:Man did you ever hear of purty Molly Brannigan?
W:She stole away my heart and I'll never be a man again.
W:There's not a spot on my hide will another summer tan again,
W:Since Molly's gone and left me all alone for to die.
W:Dee idle diddley dootle [etc]
W:There's a hole in my heart you could easy round a turnip in,
W:As big as any pavin' stone from Dublin to the Divil's den.
W:If she chose to take another sure she might have left mine back again,
W:And not to leave me here all alone for to die.
W:Dee howdle duddley dootle [etc]
W:Man dear I remember when milkin' time was past and gone,
W:We went into the meadows where she swore I was the only one
W:That ever she could love, but, oh, she proved to be the cruel one
W:And left me here lamentin' all alone for to die.
W:Dee idle diddley dum dowtle [etc]
