W:Had they wed me to a glamour boy without any money at all W:Sure he'd take me in his arms and he'd roll me from the wall! W: W:Well at the fairs and markets I see all of me glamours there W:But when I look upon me old grey man sure he fills me with despair. W:He fills me with despair me boys and I'll tell you the reason why W:For he's got two hanging eyebrows and likewise a jealous eye. W: W:Oh hold your tongue, now Sally me dear, while I go into town W:I'll buy you a nice wee petticoat and a lovely muslin gown W:For the ladies at the fair you'll outshine them all by far W:And I'll buy you a lovely wee lap dog to follow your jauntin' car. W: W:To hell with yer lovely wee lap dog, and likewise your muslin gown W:I'd rather have a glamour boy than all of your money and grounds W:I'd rather have a glamour boy without any money at all W:And he'd take me in his arms and he'd roll me from the wall! W: W:Well now the old grey man is dead and he has left to me W:Fifty pounds in solid gold, isn't that a handsome fee? W:His farm, his riches and free land to me has left them all W:And now I can marry me glamour boy and he'll roll me from the wall! W: W:But not long after the honeymoon, me glamour began to jar, W:He killed my little lap dog and he smashed me jaunting car, W:Me taypot and me china then, he smashed and broke them all W:Ah, God knows I've had to suffer for me rolling from the wall...
