Charming Molly Charming Molly, fair brisk and gay Like nightingales in May All round her eyelids young Cupids play She has eyes so bright they shine Black as any berry, cheeks like any cherry Charming Molly with sparkling eyes. Haw the swain do admire And desire a pretty little girl To hold her hand it burns like sparkling fire In her face these things are seen: Violets, roses, lillies and daffadown-dillies Charming Molly she is all divine. Surely there's no one loves a pretty woman If she be not common Surely such beauty most men admire Surely there's no one can them despise Because they are so pretty and they talk so witty Charming Molly with sparkling eyes. From the Copper Family Song Book RG Apr98
