Tittery Irie Aye

Tittery Irie Aye

Come all my good people and listen to my song,
Although it's not so very good it's not so very long
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

Now concerning this strange people I'm now a-goin' to sing,
For the way they have been treated I think it is a sin.
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

They've been driven from their homes and away from Nauvoo
For to seek another home in the wilderness anew.
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

O they stopped among the Indians but there don't mean to stay
And they'll soon be a-packin' up and jogging on their way.
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

They made a halt at Council Bluffs, but there don't mean to stay
Some feed their cattle rushes and some prarie hay.
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

There is another item, to mention it I must
Concerning spiritual women that make a helluva fuss,
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

Some men have got a dozen wives and others have a score
And the man that's got just one wife is a-lookin' out for more,
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

Now young men don't get discouraged, get married if you can
But take care don't get a woman that belongs to another man,
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

Now concerning this strange people I've nothing more to say
Until we all get settled in some future day.
And sing Tittery Irie Aye sing Tittery Irie Oh.

note: Here is yet another Mormon folksong.  Actually this one is
about the Mormons from a sympathetic though non-Mormon perspective.
