A Ballad

Ainm an Aithriseóra: S Ó Siocfhradha (nach maireann)
Now Lads and Lasses come listen to me.
I’ll sing a few verses both cheerful and free.
Of a Cork young lass and a Glenbeigh Boy.
And they called him the Phillipine soldier.

For Glasgow city on his way he was bent
They drank away to their hearts content.
Herself and her Phillipine soldier.
