W:So I made a resolu-ti-on W:and thought it a very good plan W:for to take a trip to Amerikay W:and view that lovely land. W: W:When I landed in Philadelphia W:all the girls on me did smile. W:Says one unto the other W:"There goes an Irish boy." W:They asked me for to dine with them W:And they took me by the hand W:And the toast went merrily round the room W:for the ramblin' Irishman. W: W:They brought me to a grand hotel W:and there to spend the night. W:When the landlady's wee daughter W:on me took great delight. W:She never took her eyes off me W:as on the shore I stand. W:And she whispers to her mother W:"I'm in love with the Irishman." W: W:Said the mother to her daughter W:What do you mean to do? W:To fall in love with an Irishman, W:a lad that you never knew W:with his knapsack on his shoulder W:and shillelagh under his arm. W:Sure I'll ramble the whole world over W:my ramblin' Irishman. W: W:Now that we are married W:and settled down in life. W:We're as happy as two turtle doves W:myself and my wee wife. W:Sure I'll work for her and I'll toil for her W:and I'll do the best I can, W:and she'll never say she rued the day W:she married an Irishman.
