open the door for the fiddling tailor
open the door for the tailoring fiddler
open the door for the fiddling tailor
the king’s son-in-law is the tailoring fiddler.

faithful am i to him, kinsman am i to him
faithful am i to the tailoring fiddler
faithful am i to him, kinsman am i to him
the king’s son-in-law is the tailoring fiddler.

goat’s milk for the fiddling tailor
goat’s milk for the tailoring fiddler
goat’s milk for the fiddling tailor
the king’s son-in-law is the tailoring fiddler.

donald ruadh the piper’s russet-haired daughter
would attend a ball if she could catch the fiddler’s eye
donald ruadh the piper’s russet-haired daughter
would be quite peace loving
provided she was given a dram
she would card wool, she would comb wool,
she would attend a ball
if she could catch the fiddler’s eye
she would be quite peace loving
provided she was given a dram.
