Ye laddes and bucks leave off your sly looks
While I tell of one Thady O Brady
Who courted Miss Reilly so snug and so slyly
Determined to make her his lady
But before hed begin to commit that great sin
Which the clergy the call matrimoney
His furniture all he would tell at one time
That he'd give to his own darling.

A bolster quilt blankets and sheets too
A straw curtain one side to the rafters well tied.
And a purty dale board at our feet too
In one corner some meal in another a pail
Of sweet milk and roll'd butter hard by it
