THE WIDOW MALONE
id you hear of the Widow Malone
Who lived in the town of Athlone
O, she melted the hearts
Of the swains in them parts;
So lovely the Widow Malone,
So lovely the Widow Malone.
Of lovers she had a full score
And fortunes they all had galore
From the minister down
To the clerk of the Crown,
All were courting the Widow Malone
All were courting the Widow Malone.
But so modest was Mrs. Malone,
That no one could see her alone,
Let them ogle and sigh,
They could ne'er catch her eye;
So bashful the Widow Malone,
So bashful the Widow Malone.
Till one Mister O'Brien from Clare,
'Tis little for blushing they care
Put his arm round her waist,
Gave ten kisses at laste,
And says he, "You're my Molly Malone,
Says he, "You're my Molly Malone."
And the widow they all thought so shy--
Never thought of a simper or sigh;
"O Lucius," said she,
"Since you've now made so free,
You may marry your Mary Malone,
You may marry your Mary Malone."
There's a moral contained in my song,
And one comfort it's not very long,
If for widows you die,
Learn to kiss--not to sigh,
For they're all like sweet Mistress Malone!
O they're all like sweet Mistress Malone!
