Oh Brian O’Linn had a daughter to wed
She had neither an eye nor a tooth in her head
She was hairy all over and scabs in the skin
- She’s a wonderful beauty, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn had no coat for to wear
He got an old sheepskin and he shaped it out fair
With the fleecy side out and the fleshy side in
– ‘Tis cosy and war-m, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn had no hat for to wear
He go an old pot that was out in the shed
With the horny side out and the polished side in
– Sure it suits me like heaven, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn had no shoes for to wear
He purchased a pair at a cobbler’s stall
The uppers were worn and the soles they were thin
– Sure they’ll do me for dancing, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn had no watch for to wear
He got an old turnip and he shaped it out fair
He placed a live cricket right under its skin
– And you’d swear she was ticking, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn and the wife and wife’s mother
They all crossed over the bridge together
The bridge went down and they all fell in
– We’ll go home by water, says Brian O’Linn

Brian O’Linn and the wife and wife’s mother
Sure they all jumped into the bed together
The blankets were worn and the sheets they were thin
– Lie close to the wall, says Brian O’Linn.
