Traditional song from Ireland


There lived a woman in our town, a woman you ought know well

She loved her husband dearly but the other one twice as well

With me right finnickinario, tip finnick-a-wall

With me right finnickinario, tipping it up to Nancy

She went into a chemist shop a remedy for to find

“Have you anything in your chemist shop to make my husband blind” 

“Just give him eggs and marrowbones and make him suck them all

Before he has the last one sucked he won't see you at all”

She gave him eggs and marrowbones and made him suck them all

Before he had the last one sucked he didn’t see her at all

If in this world I cannot see here I cannot stay

I'll drown myself”, “come on” says she “and I'll show you the way”

She led him to the river she led him to the brim

But sly enough of the old man it was him that shoved her in

“Oh help me dear husband don't leave me behind”

“Oh well” he says “you silly old fool, you know your husband’s blind”
