peggy gordon lyrics – corrs

oh, peggy gordon you are my darling
come sit you down upon my knee
come tell to me the very reason
why i am slighted so by thee

i’m so in love i can’t deny it
my heart lies smothered in my breast
it’s not for you to let the world know it
a troubled mind can know no rest

i did put my head to a cask of brandy
it was my fancy i do declare
for when i’m drinking i am thinking
and wishing peggy gordon was here

i wish i was away in ingo
far across the briny sea
sailing o’er the deepest ocean
where love nor care never bother me

i wish i was in some lonesome valley
where womankind can not be found
where the pretty small birds do change their voices
and every moment a different sound

(repeat first line)
