Bridget Flynn

Bridget Flynn

I’ve a nice little house and a cow or two with grass
a plant garden running by my door
I’ve a shelter for the hens and a stable for the ass
Oh what could a man want more
I don’t know maybe so but a bachelor’s like is easy and it’s free
I have lots to look after when I’m livin’ all alone
sure nobody’s lookin after me

Well my father often tells me I should go and have a try
to find a girl who owns a bit of land
and I know the way he says it that there’s someone on his mind
and me mother has the whole thing planned
I don’t know, maybe so, it would mollify them so to agree
now there’s little Bridget Flynn she’s the girl I’d like to win
but she never has an eye for me

well now there’s a little girl who is worth her weight in gold
and that’s a decent dowery don’t ye see
and I mean to go and ask her just as soon as I get home
if she’ll come and have an eye for me
will she go, I don’t know, but I’d love to have her sittin’ on my knee
I would sing like a thrush in a Hawthorn bush
if she’d come and have an eye for me
