Wolfe Tones – Kiss The Ould Mother, Hug The Old Man lyrics
There's an Island that's famed and in Story
Sweet poets of song and her praise
And their Songs are of no brighter Story
But for Sons that have seen happier days
And though when I go the world over
And no matter where ever i go
In my heart there's a spot for old Ireland
And for you now sweet Molly a'store

And I'll kiss the ould Mother
And hug the ould Man
Give Johnny a shilling
And shake hands with Dan
Fight for me country and do all i can
Then i go out with my girl Molly Ann

Old Erin my country once happy
But Fortune once smiled on your shore
And I long for that day that's fast coming
When her Beauty it be ever more

For the english decievers by nature
Though maybe you think them sincere
If they say your a sweet charming creature
Now dont you believe them my dear

And I'll kiss the ould Mother
And hug the ould Man
Give Johnny a shilling
And shake hands with Dan
Fight for me country and do all i can
Then i go out with my girl Molly Ann

Success to the boys then from Erin
The finest and smartest there seen
In battle They prove themselves therein
True to the shamrock the harp and the green
Then here's to the mossy green bowers
That grows around erin's
Green Shore
Every link of the ancient round tower
And my girl now sweet Molly astore

And I'll kiss the ould Mother
And hug the ould Man
Give Johnny a shilling
And shake hands with Dan
Fight for me country and do all i can
Then i go out with my girl Molly Ann
