Kimmage

Lyrics

There were three lovely lasses from Kimmage
Kimmage, Kimmage
Got into a bit of a scrimmage
And I was the toughest of all
Sure I was the toughest of all

Now the cause of the row was Joe Cashin
Joe Cashin, Joe Cashin
For he told me he tought I looked smashin’
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall

When he gets a few jars he goes frantic
Frantic, oh frantic
He’s tall and he’s dark and romantic
I love him in spite of it all
And I love him in spite of it all

Now the other two young ones were flippin’
Flippin’, were flippin’
When they saw me and Joe and us trippin’
To the strains of the Tennessee waltz
To the strains of the Tennessee waltz

He told me he thought we should marry
Marry, should marry
For he said we’d be foolish to tarry
So I lent him the price of the ring
I lent him the price of the ring

Now me Da says he’ll give us a present
Present, a present
An oul’ stool and a lovely stuffed pheasant
And a picture to hang on the wall
A picture to hang on the wall

I went down to the tenancy section
Section, the section
The T.D. before the election
Said he’d get me a house near me Ma
He’d get me ahouse near me Ma

Well, we’re getting the house now, the man said
He said it,he said it
When I’ve five or six kids to me credit
In the meantime we’ll live with me Ma
In the meantime we’ll live with me Ma.
