Sample of The Spanish Lady

Sample of The Spanish Lady

As I went down through Dublin City

At the hour of twelve at night

Who should I see but the Spanish Lady

Washin’ her feet in the pale moon light

First she washed them

Then she dried them

Over a fire of amber coals

In all my life I never did see

A maid so sweet about the soul

Whack for the too ra loo ra laddie

Whack for the too ra loo ra li

Whack for the too ra loo ra laddie

Whack for the too ra loo ra li

As I went down through Dublin City

At the hour of half past eight

Who should I see but the Spanish Lady

Combin her hair in the broad daylight

First she tossed it, then she brushed it

In her lap was a silver comb

In all my life I never did see

A maid so sweet where I did roam

Whack for..etc..

As I went down through Dublin City

That time I’ll ne’er forget

Who should I see but the Spanish Lady

Catchin’ a moth in a silver net

First she spied me, then she fled me

Throwin’ her petty-coat over her knee

In all my life I never did see

A maid so sweet as the Spanish Laydee.

Whack for..etc…

I stopped to look

But the watchman passed

He said young fella, the hour is late

Get along home now or I’ll wrastle yah

Straightway through the Bridewell gate

I blew a kiss to the Spanish Lady

Hot as a fire of amber coals

In all my life I never did see

A maid so sweet about the soul

Whack for ..etc..

I wandered north and wandered south

Through Stony Batter and Patrick’s Close

Up and around the Gloucester Diamond

And back by Napper Tandy’s home

Old age has laid her hands on me

With icy fingers like ashen coals

In all my life I never did see

A maid so sweet about the soul

Whack for the ..etc..
