Lyrics

There were three lovely lasses from Kimmage
From Kimmage, from Kimmage
And whenever there's a bit of a scrimmage
Sure, I was the toughest of all
Sure, I was the toughest of all

Now the cause of the row was Joe Cashin
Joe Cashin', Joe Cashin'
For he told me he thought I looked smashin'
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall
At a dance in the Adelaide Hall

When he gets a few jars he goes frantic
Oh frantic, oh frantic
But he's tall and he's dark and romantic
And I love him in spite of it all
And I love him in spite of it all

Now the other two young ones were flippin'
Were flippin', were flippin'
When they saw me and Joe and me trippin'
To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz
To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz

Now he told me he thought we should marry
Should marry, should marry
For he said it was foolish to tarry
So I lent him the price of the ring
So I lent him the price of the ring

Now me da says he'll give us a present
A present, a present
An oul' stool and a lovely stuffed pheasant
And a picture to hang on the wall
And a picture to hang on the wall

I went down to the Tenancy Section
The Section, the Section
The T.D. just before the election
Said he'd get me a house near me ma
Yes, he'd get me a house near me ma

Well we're gettin' the house, the man said it
He said it, he said it
When I've five or six kids to my credit
In the meantime we'll live with me ma
In the meantime we'll live with me ma
