my irish molly o lyrics – celtic thunder

molly, dear, now did you hear
the news that’s goin’ ’round?
down in a corner of my heart,
a love is what you’ve found.
and every time i look into
your eyes of irish blue,
you seem to whisper in my ear,
“my love is just for you.”
oh, molly, my irish molly,
my sweet acushla dear,
i’m fairly off my trolley,
my irish molly,
when you are near.
springtime is only “ringtime”
come, dear, now don’t be slow
change your name,
go on the game,
begorra, wouldn’t i do the same
my irish molly-o!
molly, dear, now did you hear
i furnished up the flat?
three little cozy rooms
‘n a bed ‘n a “welcome” on the mat.
it’s five pounds down and two a week,
she’ll soon be out of debt.
it’s all complete except
they haven’t bought the cradle yet.
oh, molly, my irish molly,
my sweet acushla dear,
i’m fairly off my trolley,
my irish molly,
when you are near.
springtime is only “ringtime”
come, dear, now don’t be slow
change your name,
go on the game,
begorra, wouldn’t i do the same
my irish molly-o!
molly, dear, and did you hear
what all the neighbors day
about those 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.
oh, molly, my irish molly,
my sweet acushla dear,
i’m fairly off my trolley,
my irish molly,
when you are near.
springtime is only “ringtime”
come, dear, now don’t be slow
change your name,
go on the game,
begorra, wouldn’t i do the same
my irish molly-o!
