Pretty Susan the Pride of Kildare

Lyrics

When from sea first I landed with roving in mind
Undaunted I rambled, my true love to find
I met pretty Susan with cheeks like a rose
And her bosum more fair than the lilly that grows

Chorus
With me whack fol dol da, fol dol diddy i aye
With me whack fol dol diddy i aye

Her keen eyes did glitter like bright stars by night
And the robes she was wearing were costly and white
Her bare neck was shaded with her long raven hair
And they call her pretty Susan, the pride of Kildare
Chorus

Sometimes I am jovial, sometimes I am sad
Since my love, she is courted by some other lad
But since we’re at a distance, no more I’ll dispare
So my blessing on Susan, the pride of Kildare
Chorus
