    When I was in Ireland, song / Mary Harte, singing in English

    When I was in Ireland and digging up land With my brogues on my feet and my spade in my hand, Oh, up came a sergeant, said he, – Would you list? – Arrah, gra machree, sergeant, give me a hold of your fist. Singing taddy hi ho, taddy hi ho, Wack fol de doodle, singing taddy hi ho. 2 He gave me five bob, he said he’d give me more, – Call up to headquarters, I’ll pay off your score. – Headquarters, headquarters, headquarters, says I, If I’m gaan to be quartered, sir, I’ll bid you goodbye. 3 When I listed to sea I was sent On board a big ship called the Bonny Dundee, Three sticks in the middle all covered with a sheet And she walked along the water without any feet. 4 And when I was listed to India I was sent, With climbing up rocks my knees were all bent; I listed for seven, thank God it’s not ten, I’ll go hame to oul Ireland and I’ll dig turf again.
