The Town Pants – Bold O'donaghue lyrics
Well, here I am from Paddy's land, the land of high renown.
I broke the hearts of all the girls for miles from Keady Town;
And when they hear that I'm awa', they'll raise a hullaballoo
When they hear about the handsome lad they call O'Donahue.

For I'm the boy to please her and I'm the boy to tease her,
I'm the boy can squeeze her up and I'll tell you what I'll do:
I'll court her like an Irishman with the brogue and blarney too is me plan
With me rollikin swollikin hollikin wollikin bold O'Donahue.

I wish me love was a 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 a rather heavy dew,
No more she'd love the handsome lad that they call O'Donahue.

For I'm the boy to...

I hear that Queen Victoria has a daughter fine and grand.
Perhaps she'd take it into her head for to marry an Irishman,
And if I could only get the chance to have a word or two,
I'm sure she'd take a notion in the bold O'Donahue.

For I'm the boy to...
