Who calls her his wife
Some day at the altar rails
With his fair young bride on pleasures tide,
The seaman's boat theyll sail
And maybe their son would say "dear John,
Come in and have a gill,"
For the song you wrote on my parents both,
Styled the rose of Meegan's hill.

(near Dundalk)

In the Dodger's street, they were to meet
They came in two & threes
The Nugents & the Garveys, the Connors & the Fees
The blacksmiths too I near forgot
And other folks forby.
Bridgie Fee was in great glee & for her was great call,
But only Matty Hoy did pay her pass
She couldn't go at all.
