Being on a market day in the merry month of May
Sure the dockings and the nettles are in bloom
A fair maiden passed me by she winked with her right eye
Neath the bright silvery light of the moon.

It was love that first sight for me it was delight
We soon began to cuddle and to spoon
We got married right away in the church at Clonmany
Neath the bright silvery light of the moon.

Sure she squandered all my dough to her home I had to go
What an awful place to spend a honeymoon
The was no fire in the grate you could see right through the slate
The bright silvery light of the moon.

When going up to bed I was in an awful dread
I knew that I was going far too soon
For lying on the chair was her teeth her leg her hair
Neath the bright silvery light of the moon.

There was worse for me in store she soon began to snore
She nearly blew the blankets through the room
I seized her by the head and I flung her out of bed
Neath the bright silvery light of the moon.

All you maidens young and old take a lesson while you’re told
Never eye a maiden too soon
Till make sure that she’s all there pull her teeth her leg her hair
Neath the bright silvery light of the moon.
