Tommy Makem – Kitty Magee lyrics
I've kissed and courted them all, gentle and simple, short and medium and tall
But kept a merry heart free, 'till it was stole unknownst by Kitty Magee
Her smiling face, her slender waist, her lips would tempt a saint to taste
Oh, sure it was small blame to me to lose my heart to Kitty Magee

'Twas down at Ballina Fair, colleens and boys were gaily stepping it there
And I the soul of the spree, when I set eyes on Kitty Magee
Her smile so sweet, her step so neat, hide and seek her two little feet
Gliding just like a swan at sea, went handsome, winsome Kitty Magee

And now I'm dreaming all day, sighing from dark to dawn and wasting away
Like a lone bird on a tree, sighing the long hours through for Kitty Magee
Oh, darling dear, the shrove is near, say the words I'm dying to hear
Promise me mine you soon will be, handsome, winsome Kitty Magee
