Well, here I am from Paddy's land, a land of high renown|
I broke the hearts of all the girls for miles round Keady town
And when they hear that I'm awa' they'll raise a hullabaloo
When they hear about that handsome lad they call O'Donahue!
For I'm the boy to squeeze her, and I'm the boy to tease her
I'm the boy that can please her, ach, an' I'll tell you what I'll do
I'll court her like an Irishman
Wi' me brogue and blarney too is me plan
With the holligan, rolligan, swolligan, molligan bold O'Donahue!
2. I wish my love was a red red rose growing on yon garden wall
3. Well I hear that Queen Victoria has a daughter fine and grand
