As I Roved

Who are you my pretty fair maid,
who are you me darling?
Who are you my pretty fair maid,
who are you me darling?
She answered me quite modestly
"I am me mothers darling"

With a-me too-ry-ah fol-de-diddle-dah
Hi-re fol-de-diddle dai-rie oh.
   
I went to her house in the middle of the night
when the moon was shining clearly.
So I went to her house in the middle of the night
when the moon was shining clearly.
She opened the door and she let me in and divil
the one did hear us.

And we made love till the break of day and divil
the one did hear us
And we made love till the break of day and divil
the one did hear us
When morning came I put on my clothes saying
"lassie I must leave ya"

Can you taste it?
Can you feel it?

Well she turned around and she said to me "when will we be
married?"........

When broken shells make Christmas bells
that when we'll be married.
