Oh when will we get married my decent Irish lad
No sooner than tomorrow I think it will not be bad
Can we get married no sooner my dearest Irish lad
Do you want to get married this moment
Auld woman I think you’re mad.

Who will we have at the wedding my decent Irish lad
If we have fathers and mothers I think it will not be bad
Can we have nobody better my decent Irish lad
Do you want to have a congregation
Auld woman I think you’re mad

What will we have at the dinner my decent Irish lad
If we have praties and herring I think it will not be bad
Can we have nothing better my decent Irish lad
Do you want to have bullocks and heifers
Auld woman I think you’re mad.

What will we have to lie on my decent Irish lad
A battle of straw in the corner I think it will not be bad
Can we have nothing better my decent Irish lad
Do you want to be rolling in feathers
Auld woman I think you’re mad.

When will we have children my decent Irish lad
As soon as God allows it I think it will not be bad
Can we have them no sooner my decent Irish lad
Do you want to have them this moment
Auld woman I think you’re mad.
