LyricsSong
Her eyes they shone like the diamonds. You'd think she was queen of the land.
I'm going to make a good sharp axe, shining steel tempered in the fire. We'll chop you down like an old dead tree.
In the merry month of June from me home I started, left the girls of Tuam so sad and broken hearted.
A ship there is and she sails the sea. She's loaded deep as deep can be. But not so deep as the love I'm in. I know not if I sink or swim.
Last night she came to me, my dead love came in. So softly she came that her feet made no din.
And who are you, me pretty fair maid, and who are you, me honey? And who are you, me pretty fair maid, and who are you, me honey?
And if you come, when all the flowers are dying, and I am dead, as dead I well may be, you'll come and find the place where I am lying and kneel and say an 'Ave' there for me.
From Bantry Bay up to Derry Quay and from Galway to Dublin town, no maid I've seen like the sweet colleen that I met in the County Down.
LyricsSong
For your smile is a part of the love in your heart, and it makes even sunshine more bright. Like the linnet's sweet song, crooning all the day long, comes your laughter and light.
In a field down by the river, my love and I did stand, and on my leaning shoulder, she laid her snow-white hand. She bid me take life easy , as the grass grows on the weirs.
Over in Killarney many years ago, me mither sang a song to me in tones so sweet and low.
I love my love and well he knows I love the ground whereon he goes, the prettiest face, the neatest hands. I love the ground whereon he stands.
Of all the money that e'er I spent I've spent it in good company. And all the harm that ever I did, alas it was to none but me.
In Dublin's fair city, where the girls are so pretty I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone.
I went to an ale-house I used to frequent, and I told the landlady my money was spent. I asked her for credit, she answered me 'Nay. Such a custom as yours I could have any day.'
