Bridget Flynn I've a nice little house and a cow or two with grass I've a plant garden running by my door I've a shelter for the hens and a stable for the ass Now what could a man want more? I don't know, maybe so But a bachelor's life is easy and it's free I'm the last to complain, but I'm living all alone Sure nobody's looking after me Me father often tells me I should go and have a try To find a girl that owns a bit of land And I know the way he says it, there is someone on his mind And my mother has the whole thing planned I don't know, maybe so It would mollify them so to agree Now there's little Bridget Flynn, sure its her I'd like to win But she never has an eye for me Now there's a little girl who is worth her weight in gold And that's a decent dowry, don't you see And I mean to go and ask her just as soon as I get home If she'll come and have an eye for me Will she go, I don't know But I'd love to have her sitting on my knee And I'd sing like a thrush in the hawthorn bush If she'd come and have an eye for me recorded by the Irish Rovers SOF
