  THE SABINE FARMER'S SERENADE  

                         I

'Twas on a windy night,
    At two o'clock in the morning,
An Irish lad so tight,
    All wind and weather scorning,
At Judy Callaghan's door.
    Sitting upon the palings,
His love-tale he did pour,
    And this was part of his wailings:--
    Only say
You'll be Mrs. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                         II

Oh! list to what I say,
    Charms you've got like Venus;
Own your love you may,
    There's but the wall between us.
You lie fast asleep
    Snug in bed and snoring;
Round the house I creep,
    Your hard heart imploring.
    Only say
You'll have Mr. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                        III

I've got a pig and a sow,
    I've got a sty to sleep 'em
A calf and a brindled cow,
    And a cabin too, to keep 'em;
Sunday hat and coat,
    An old grey mare to ride on,
Saddle and bridle to boot,
    Which you may ride astride on.
    Only say
You'll be Mrs. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                         IV

I've got an acre of ground,
    I've got it set with praties;
I've got of 'baccy a pound,
    I've got some tea for the ladies;
I've got the ring to wed,
    Some whisky to make us gaily;
I've got a feather bed
    And a handsome new shillelagh.
    Only say
You'll have Mr. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                         V

You've got a charming eye,
    You've got some spelling and reading
You've got, and so have I,
    A taste for genteel breeding;
You're rich, and fair, and young,
    As everybody's knowing;
You've got a decent tongue
    Whene'er 'tis set a-going.
    Only say
You'll be Mrs. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                         VI

For a wife till death
    I am willing to take ye;
But, och! I waste my breath,
    The devil himself can't wake ye.
'Tis just beginning to rain,
    So I'll get under cover;
To-morrow I'll come again,
    And be your constant lover.
    Only say
You'll be Mrs. Brallaghan;
    Don't say nay,
Charming Judy Callaghan.

                    Father Prout.
