My Irish Molly O    (1905)

Molly dear and did you hear the news that's going round
Down in a corner of my heart, a love is what I've found
And every time I look into your Irish eyes so blue
They seem to whisper darling boy, my love is all for you

O Molly, my Irish Molly, my sweet acushla dear
I'm fairly off my trolley, my Irish Molly when you are near
Springtime you know is ring time
Come dear, now don't be so slow
Change your name, go on be game
Begorra and I'll do the same my Irish Molly O

Molly dear now did you hear I furnished up the flat
Three little cosy rooms with bath and a 'welcome' on the mat
It's five pounds down and two a week, we'll soon be out of debt
It's all complete except they haven't brought the cradle yet

O Molly, my Irish Molly, my sweet acushla dear
I'm fairly off my trolley, my Irish Molly when you are near
Springtime you know is ring time
Come dear, now don't be so slow
Change your name, go on be game
Begorra and I'll do the same my Irish Molly O

[Instrumental]

Molly dear now did you hear what all the neighbours say
About the hundred sovereigns you have safely stowed away
They say that's why I love you, ah but Molly that's a shame
If you had only ninety-nine, I'd love you just the same

O Molly, my Irish Molly, my sweet acushla dear
I'm fairly off my trolley, my Irish Molly when you are near
Springtime you know is ring time
Come dear, now don't be so slow
Change your name, go on be game
Begorra and I'll do the same My Irish Molly O
