Lyrics

There were three lovely lassies from Kimmage
from Kimmage, from Kimmage, from Kimmage
And whenever there was a bit of a scrimmage
Sure I was the toughest of all
Sure I was the toughest of all

Well the cause of the row is Joe Cashin
Joe Cashin, Joe Cashin, Joe Cashin
For he told me he thought I looked smashin'
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall

He told me he thought we should marry
Should marry, should marry, should marry
He said it was foolish to tarry
So he lent me the price of a ring
So he lent me the price of a ring

When he gets a few jars he goes frantic
Goes frantic, goes frantic, goes frantic
Well he's tall and he's dark and romantic
And I love him in spite of it all
And I love him in spite of it all

Well me Dad said he'd give us a present
A present, a present, a present
A stool and a lovely stuffed pheasant
And a picture to hang on the wall
And a picture to hang on the wall

I went down to the tenancy section
The section, the section, the section
The T.D. just before the election
Said he'd get me a house near me ma
Said he'd get me a house near me ma

Well I'm getting a house the man said it
he said it, 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
