A BALLYNURE BALLAD

 

As I was goin' to Ballynure, the day I well remember,
For to view the lads and lasses on the fifth day of November.

chorus:
With me ring-a-doo-ma-day,
With me ring-a-doo-ma-daddy, oh!

As I was goin' along the road when homeward I was walking
I heard a wee lad behind a ditch to his wee lass was talking.

Said the wee lad to his wee lass 'It's will ye let me kiss ye,
For it's I have got the cordial eye that far exceeds the whiskey'.

This cordial that ye talk about there's very few can get it,
For there's nothin' now but crooked combs and muslin gowns can catch it.

As I was goin' along the road when homeward I was walking
I heard a wee lad behind a ditch to his wee lass was talking.
