Get Me Down My Petticoat Ah! Get me down my petticoat, Ah! Get me down my shawl. And get me down my buttoned boots For I'm off to the Linenhall cho: With your he was the quare one, Fol the diddle Kerry wha Wasn't he the quare one I'll tell you! Now if he's jouned the Army All under a false name, To jew me out of my pension, it's His ould one's all to blame Now if you go to Curragh Camp Just ask for number nine. You'll find three squaddies standin' there And the best-lookin' one is mine. Now if you go to the fighting line, And there to fight the Boer; Will ye kindly hould the Dublins back Let the Culchies go before. My love is o'er the water My love is o'er the sea. My love is o'er the water, And left me in a family way. Recorded by MacColl --- British Army Songs (Folkways} RG
