As I was goin' to Ballynure,
A day I will remember,
For to see the lads and lasses all,
On the fifth day of November.
Refrain:
With a' ma-ring dingle day,
Oh, ma-ringle-dil a' dally-o.

2. As I was goin' along the road
When homeward I was walking,
I heard a wee lad behind a ditch-a
To his wee lass talking,
Refrain:

3. Said the wee lad to the wee lass
"It's will ye let me kiss ye,
For it's I have the cordial eye
That far exceeds the whiskey,"
Refrain:

4. This cordial that ye talk about
There's very few o' them gets it,
For there's nothin' now but crooked combs
And muslin gowns can catch it.
Refrain:

5. As I was goin' along the road
When homeward I was walking,
I heard a wee lad behind a hist
To his wee lass talking,
Refrain:
