W: W:Chorus: W:Step it out Mary, my fine daughter, W:Step it out Mary, if you can, W:Step it out Mary, my fine daughter, W:Show your legs to the countryman. W: W:I have come to court your daughter, Mary of the golden hair, W:I have wealth and I have money, I have goods beyond compare, W:I will buy her silks and satin, and a gold ring for her hand, W:I'll build for her a mansion, she'll have servants to command. W: W:Chorus W: W:Oh kind Sir I love a soldier, I have pledged to him my hand, W:I don't want your wealth nor money, I don't want your house nor land, W:Mary's father spoke up sharply: You will do as you are told, W:You'll be married on a Sunday and you'll wear the ring of gold. W: W:Chorus W: W:In the village of Kildorey there's a deep stream running by, W:They found her there at midnight, she drowned with the soldier boy. W:In the cottage there is music, you can hear her father say: W:Step it out, Mary, my fine daughter, Sunday is your wedding day. W: W:Chorus
