W: W:My bonnie blue eyed lassie with her fair heart so tender, W:Her red rosy cheeks, and her waist so neat and slender, W:I'd roll her in my arms, and fondly I'd embrace her, W:But how can I love her, when all my people hate her. W: W:Some say that she is so very low in station, W:And more say that she'll be the cause of my ruination, W:But let them all say as they will, to her I will prove constant still, W:To the day that I die she'll be my darling girl, believe me. W: W:Softly swim the swans o'er the broad streams of Youghal, W:And lightly sings the nightingale all for to behold her, W:In cold frost and snow they know, it shines so brightly, W:But deeper by far between me and my true lover.
