  1. Come all ye boys of Dunnycove
    And warning take by me
    Be sure and take a fools advice
    that ploughs the sea
    To keep away from Sandescove
    for you will rue the day
    Tom Calnan swore a solemn oath
    he'd take some life away
    His four oar boat lies on the road
    She is all destroyed and smashed
    From these united gamblers
    who came to court the lass.
    They watches tight just by her
    side, as anyone passes by
