The Lakes of Sligo
Fair Sligo thee, I now must leave, to part its beauty I do grieveBut not forever I believe Ill call again to Sligo.
To Holy Well I bid adieu to Hazlewood and Cairns tooAnd Tobernault that splendid view which adorns the lakes of Sligo Fair Lough Gill with its isles so grand where we often wandered hand in handOn a Summers evening by the strand along the lakes of Sligo.
On that lake we often spent manys the hour in sweet contentAnd from our boat sweet music went along the lakes of Sligo.
And then I think of Knocknarea with its honeyed cliffs hanging oer the seaIt still reminds me of the day I left my home in Sligo
The Sally Gardens Verse 1Down by the sally gardens my love and I did meetShe passed the sally gardens with little snow white feet.She bid me to take life easy as the leaves grow on the trees.But I was young and foolish with her did not agree.Verse 2In a field down by the river my love and I did standand on my leaning shoulder she laid her snow white hand.She bid me to take life easy as the grass grows on the weirsBut I was young and foolish and now I am full of tears
She moved through the fairMy young love said to meMy mother wont mindAnd my father wont slight you For your lack of kindThen she stepped away from me And this she did sayIt will not be long loveTil our wedding day.
She stepped away from meAnd she moved through the fair.And so fondly I watched her Move here and move thereAnd then she went homewardWith one star awakeAs the swan in the evening moves over the lake.Last night she came to meShe came softly in,So softly she came thatHer feet made no din,She laid her hand on me And this she did sayIt will not be long love Til our wedding day.
The Parting GlassOf all the money that ere I had, I spent it in good company.And of all the harm that ere I've done, Alas was done to none but me.And all I've done for want of wit, to memory now I cannot recall.So fill me to the parting glass.Goodnight and joy be with you all.
Oh, if I had money enough to spendand leisure time to sit awhileThere is a fair maid in this townWho sorely has my heart beguiledHer rosy cheeks and ruby lips, I own she has my heart enthralledSo fill me to the parting glass. Goodnight and joy be with you all. Of all the comrades that ere Ive had,They are sorry for my going away,And of all the sweethearts that ere Ive hadThey would wish me one more day to stay,But since it falls unto my lot That I should rise while you should not,I will gently rise and I'll softly call,"Goodnight and joy be with you all!"
Star of the County DownNear Banbridge Town in the County DownOne morning last July,From a boreen green came a sweet colleenAnd she smiled as she passed me by.She looked so sweet from her two bare feetTo the sheen of her nut brown hair.Such a coaxing elf, sure I shook myselfFor to see I was really there.
Chorus:From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay andFrom Galway to Dublin Town,No maid I've seen like the sweet colleenThat I met in the County Down.
As she onward sped, sure I scratched my head,And I looked with a feelin' rare,And I say's, say's I, to a passer-by,Whos the maid with the nut brown hair?He smiled at me and he says, say's he,That's the gem of Ireland's crown.It's Rosie McCann from the banks of the Bann,Shes the star of the County Down.
Will you go Lasie go?Oh the summer time is comingAnd the leaves are sweetly bloomingAnd the wild mountain thymeGrows around the blooming heatherWill you go Lassie go
Chorus:And well all go togetherTo pluck wild mountain thymeAll around the blooming heatherWill you go Lassie go?I will build my love a towerNear yon pure crystal fountainAnd on it I will grow All the flowers of the mountainWill you go Lassie go?
If my true love he were goneI would surely find another Where the wild mountain thyme Grows around the blooming heatherWill you go Lassie go?Chorus:
Do you love an apple?Chorus:Do you love an appleDo you love a pearDo you love a laddie With curly brown hairOh still I love himI cant deny himIll go with him wherever he goes.
He stood at the corner A fag in his mouthTwo hands in his pocketsHe whistled me out.Oh still I love him I cant deny himIll go with him wherever he goesChorus:He gave me a hankieIts colour was blueBefore I could use it He tore it in twoOh still I love himI cant deny himIll go with him wherever he goes.Chorus:
Theres tea in the teapotAnd bread on the shelfIf you want any moreYou can sing it yourselfStill I love himI cant deny himIll go with him wherever he goes.Chorus:
The Magical BandCome away for a year and a dayIn a boat on a rainbow streamWhere little folk meet with the stars at their feetOn a dazzling light moonbeam.
Chorus:Oh hand in hand with the magical band Away to fairyland dreamingAnd dancing away from the world todayGo the little ones when theyre sleepingTogether they come where the songbirds humAnd the wind is playing a tuneBluebells ring a lullaby singBy the light of the silver moon.Chorus:
The early bird brings on golden wingsThe sparkling drops of dewAll through the night making morning lightAnd sprinkling the raindrops too.
P is for PaddyAs I went out one May morningTo take a pleasant walkI sat me down near an old oak treeFor to hear two lovers talk For to hear what they might say my dearTo hear what they might saySo that I might learn a little more about loveBefore Id go away.
Chorus:P it stands for Paddy I supposeAnd J for my love JohnAnd W stands for the false Willie- 0But Johnny is the fairest one.Oh Johnny is the fairest one she saidJohnny is the fairest oneAnd I dont care what anybody saysCause Johnny is the fairest one.Come sit you down on the grass he saidTogether on the greenIts been a long three quarters of a year or moreSince together we have been.Since together we have been my loveTogether we have beenIts been a long three quarters of a year or moreSince together we have been.Chorus:
No Ill not come and sit with you Nor be a lover of thineFor I hear you're in love with another pretty maidAnd your hearts no longer mine.Oh your hearts no longer mine she saidYour hearts no longer mineFor I hear youre in love with another pretty maidAnd your hearts no longer mineChorus:
Teddy O NeillI dreamt all last nightOh bad 'cess to my dreamingI'd die if I thought t'would come surely to passI dreamt while the tearsdown my pillow were rollingThat Teddy was courting another fair lass. And didn't I wake with a weeping and a wailingThe pain in my heart was too deep to concealMy mother cried "Nora dear, what is your ailing?But all I could answer was Teddy O'Neill. I see the old cabin beyond the wee boreenI see the old crossroads where we used to danceI ramble the lane where he called me his stoirinAnd my girlish heart was so full of romance.
But now all is so dark and so drearyAll dark and all silent, no piper, no reelNot even the sun through the casement shines cheerySince I lost my darling love, Teddy O'Neill.
I remember the day when the big ship was sailingAnd the time it had come for my love to depart.How I cried like a child; oh goodbye to you TeddyWith a tear in my cheek and a stone in my heart.
He said twas to better his fate he went roamingBut what would be gold to the joy I would findIf hed only come back to me tender and loving,Yet poor but my own darling Teddy O Neil.
Cockles and Mussels In Dublin's fair city - where the girls are so pretty I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone As she wheeled her wheelbarrow, through the streets broad and narrow Crying cockles and mussles alive,alive-oh.
Chorus: Alive,alive-oh.Alive,alive-oh. Crying cockles and mussles,alive,alive-oh. She was a fishmonger and sure 'twas no wonder For so were her father and mother before They both wheeled their barrows through streets broad and narrow Crying cockles and mussles alive,alive-oh.
She died of a fever and no one could save her And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone But her ghost wheels her barrow through streets broad and narrow Crying cockles and mussles alive,alive-oh.Chorus
