Lyrics

As I was going to Ballynure
A day I well remember
To see the lads and lassies
On the fifth day of December
With a my ring-doo-a-day
With a my ring-a-doo-a daddy o

As I was going along the road
As onward I was walking
I heard a wee lad behind the ditch-a
To his wee lass was talking
With a my ring-doo-a-day
With a my ring-a-doo-a daddy o

Says this wee lad to this wee lass
"It's will you let me kiss ye
For it's you have got the cordial eye
That far exceeds the whiskey"
With a my ring-doo-a-day
With a my ring-a-doo-a daddy o

"This cordial that you talk about
There's very few o' them gets it
For it's only them with muslin gowns
And crooked combs that catch it"
With a my ring-doo-a-day
With a my ring-a-doo-a daddy o
