MOLLY BRANNIGAN

 

Did you ever hear the story now of purty Molly Brannigan
She stole away me heart and now I'll never be a man again
There's not a spot on me hide that'll ever take a tan again
Since Molly left me here all alone for to die.

Scitheree eetl da, deedtl dum dadtl deetl da
Dee-dum deetl da ditl scithree eitl deedl da
Scitheree eetl da, deedtl dum dadtl deetl da
Nya din da scitheree eetl deedtl da.

There's a hole in me heart you could easy roll a turnip in
As big as any paving stone from Dublin to the Devils glen
But now she's gone and left me sure I'll never be a man again
Since Molly left me here all alone for to die.

Do you remember way back when, in the summer time, it's dead and gone
She took me to the meadow and she swore I was the only one
She said that I was hers, oh but wasn't she the cruel one
To leave me here a' lilting all alone for to die.
