Blarney Lads – Bold O'donaghue lyrics

Here I am from Paddy's Land, the land of high renown
I broke the hearts of all the girls for miles round Keady Town
And when they hear that I'm a'wa they'll raise a hullabaloo
When they hear about the handsome man they call O'Donoghue

For I'm the boy to please her and I'm the boy to tease her
I'm the boy can squeeze her and I'll you what I'll do
I'll court her like an Irishman, with a brogue and blarney to is me plan
With me huligan, wuligan, ruligan, swuligan, Bold O'Donoghue

I wish me love was a red, red rose growin' on yon garden wall
And me to be a dew drop and upon her brow I'd fall
Perhaps now she might think of me as rather heavy dew
No more to love that handsome man they call O'Donoghue


I hear that Queen Victoria has a daughter fine and grand
Perhaps she'll take it in to her head for to marry an Irishman
And if I can only get a chance to have a word or two
Perhaps she'll take a notion to the bold O'Donoghue
