Tommy Makem Bold O'donahue

Well here I am from Paddy's land, a land of high renown
I've broke the hearts of all the girls from miles
'round Keady town
And when they hear that I'm awa', they'll raise a
When they hear about that handsome lad that they call
For I'm the boy to please her and I'm the boy to tease
I'm the boy can squeeze her ach', and I'll tell you
what I'll do
I'll court her like an Irishman and the brogue and
blarney too is my plan

With my rolligan, swalligan, holligan, wolligan ,bold
Now, I wish my love was a red, red rose, growing on yon
garden wall
And me to be the dew drop and upon her brow I'd fall
Perhaps now she might think on me as a rather heavy dew
And no more she'd love that handsome lad that they call
Now, I hear that Queen Victoria has a daughter fine and
Perhaps she'd take it into her head for to marry an
And if I could only get the chance to have a word or
I'm sure she'd take a notion in the bold O'Donahue
