Here I am from Paddy's land,
a land of high renown I broke the hearts of all the girls from miles of Keady town
And when they hear that I'm awa' they raise a hullaballoo When they hear about the handsome lad
they call O'Donoghue.
Chorus: For I'm the boy to please her and I'm the boy to tease her
And I'm the boy to squeeze her and I'll tell you what I'll do I'll court her
like an Irishman With me brogue and blarney too is me plan
With me rollikin, swollikin, gollikin, wollikin, bold O'Donoghue.
I wish me love was a red
red rose grown 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 Nor more she'd love the handsome lad they
They say that Queen Victoria has a daughter fine and grand
Perhaps she'd take it into her head to marry an Irishman And if I could only get the chance to
have a word or two Perhaps she'd take a notion to the bold O'Donoghue.
