Lyrics

As I roved out thro' Galway city
At the hour of twelve at night
Who should I see but a handsome damsel
Combing her hair by candlelight
"Lassie, I have come acourtin'
Your kind favours for to win
And if you'll but smile upon me
Next Sunday night I'll call again

Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day

"So to me you came acourting
My kind favours for to win
But 'twould give me the greatest pleasure
If you never did call again
What would I do when I go walking
Walking out in the morning dew?
What would I do when I go walking
Walking out with a lad like you?"

Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day

"Lassie, I have gold and silver
Lassie, I have houses and lands
Lassie, I have ships on the ocean
They'll be all at your command"
"What do I care for your ships on the ocean
What do I care for your houses and lands?
What do I care for your gold and silver?
All I want is a handsome man"

Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day

"Did you ever see the grass in the morning
All bedecked with jewels rare?
Did you ever see a handsome lassie
Diamonds sparkling in her hair?
Did you ever see a copper kettle
Mended with an ould tin can?
Did you ever see a handsome lassie
Married off to an ugly man?"

Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day

Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
Raddy a the too dum too dum too dum
Raddy a the too dum too dum day
