Daddy was a handsome lad close on seventeen
And every girl he met was mad to be Danny's queen
Danny dear oh Danny dear Danny don't be cold
Now's the time for loving dear not when we grow old

First came Kate and then came Sue and after her came Jane
And each girl in her turn would sing to Danny this refrain
Danny dear oh Danny dear...

[ piano ]

But Danny was the roving kind and he would not stay
In the arms of any girl even when she'd say
Danny dear oh Danny dear...

Then one day he met a girl as fair as any rose
And Danny's roving days were done for she made him propose
Eileen dear oh Eileen dear Eileen don't be cold
Now's the time for loving dear not when we grow old
