W:I am a ramblin' Irishman
W:and I've rambled the whole world o'er
W:in search of an occupa-ti-on
W:and I never had before.
W:So I made a resolu-ti-on
W:and thought it a very good plan
W:for to take a trip to Amerikay
W:and view that lovely land.
W:
W:When I landed in Philadelphia
W:all the girls on me did smile.
W:Says one unto the other
W:"There goes an Irish boy."
W:They asked me for to dine with them
W:And they took me by the hand
W:And the toast went merrily round the room
W:for the ramblin' Irishman.
W:
W:They brought me to a grand hotel
W:and there to spend the night.
W:When the landlady's wee daughter
W:on me took great delight.
W:She never took her eyes off me
W:as on the shore I stand.
W:And she whispers to her mother
W:"I'm in love with the Irishman."
W:
W:Said the mother to her daughter
W:What do you mean to do?
W:To fall in love with an Irishman,
W:a lad that you never knew
W:with his knapsack on his shoulder
W:and shillelagh under his arm.
W:Sure I'll ramble the whole world over
W:my ramblin' Irishman.
W:
W:Now that we are married
W:and settled down in life.
W:We're as happy as two turtle doves
W:myself and my wee wife.
W:Sure I'll work for her and I'll toil for her
W:and I'll do the best I can,
W:and she'll never say she rued the day
W:she married an Irishman.
