Kimmage KIMMAGE There were three lovely lasses from Kimmage, From Kimmage, from Kimmage And whenever there's a bit of a scrimmage Sure, I was the toughest of all Sure, I was the toughest of all. Now the cause of the row was Joe Cashin Joe Cashin', Joe Cashin' For he told me he thought I looked smashin' At a dance in the Adelaide Hall, At a dance in the Adelaide Hall. When he gets a few jars he goes frantic Oh frantic, oh 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. Now the other two young ones were flippin', Were flippin', were flippin'' When they saw me and Joe and me trippin' To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz, To the strains of the Tennessee Waltz. Now he told me he thought we should marry, Should marry, should marry, For 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, Now me da says he'll give us a present, A present, a present, An oul' stool and a lovely stuffed pheasant, And a picture to hang on the wall, And a picture to hang on the wall. I went down to the Tenaney Section, The Section, the Section, The T.D. just before the election, Said he'd get me a house near me ma, Yes, he'd get me a house near me ma. Well we're gettin' the house, the man said it He said it, he said it, When I've five or six kids to my credit In the meantime we'll live with me ma, In the meantime we'll live with me ma.
