My Irish Molly

Author: Schwartz and Jerome

Molly dear, now did you hear the news that's goin' round?
Down in a corner of my heart a love is what you've found,
And ev 'ry time I gaze into your Irish eyes so blue,
They seem to whisper, "Darling boy, my love is all for you"

Oh, Molly, my Irish Molly, My sweet a cushla dear;
I'm fairly off my trolley, My Irish Molly, when you are near.
Spring time, you know is ring time, come dear and don't be slow,
Change your name, go out with game, Begorra wouldn't I do the same
My Irish Molly, O!

Molly dear, now did you hear I furnished up the flat
Three little cosy rooms with bath and "Welcome" on the mat;
It's five pounds down and two a week, we'll soon be out of debt
It's all complete except they haven't brought the cradle yet.

Molly dear, now did you hear what all the neighbours say
About the hundred sovreigns you have safely stowed away?
They say that's why I love you. Ah but Molly, that's a shame
If you had only ninety-nine, I'd love you just the same.
