Three Lovely Lasses from Kimmage

Three Lovely Lasses from Kimmage – Irish Song

Lyrics of Three Lovely Lasses from Kimmage

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

Well the cause of the row is Joe Cashin 
Joe Cashin, Joe Cashin, Joe Cashin 
For he told me he thought I’d look smashin’ 
At a dance in Saint Anthony’s Hall, 
At a dance in Saint Anthony’s Hall. 

Well the other two young ones were flippin’,
They were flippin’, they were flippin’, they were flippin’ 
When they saw me and Joe and we trippin’ 
To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz, 
To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz. 

When he gets a few jars he goes frantic 
Frantic, goes frantic, goes 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. 

Well he told me he thought we should marry, 
Should marry, should marry, should marry 
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, 

Well me da sayd he’ll give us a present, 
A present, a present, a present 
A stool and a lousy stuffed pheasant, 
And a picture to hang on the wall, 
And a picture to hang on the wall. 

I went down to the Tenan sea Section in the Corporation, 
The section, the section, the section 
The T.D. just before the election, 
Said he’d get me a house near me ma, 
Said he’d get me a house near me ma. 

Well we’re gettin’ a house, the man said it 
Oh he said it, oh he said it, oh he said it 
When I’ve five or six kids to me credit
In the meantime we’ll live with me ma, 
In the meantime we’ll live with me ma.
