Her Name Is Nancy

Oh the girl that I love, her name is Nancy
She's small & she's neat, she's the girl I do fancy
I met her one night while out marquee dancing
I knew she was nice, all the lads they were glancing

Well I asked her name as we danced 'round the floor
I knew by her eye we'd soon head for the door
I asked her the next dance she give it to me
By the end of the night in my arms she would be


Well she lived up by-road by the side of the mountain
And my love for her it flowed like a fountain
I kissed that night by the end of house
Then she took off her shoes and crept in like a mouse


After six months, I did propose
Her father got vexed and he burst in me nose
Her mother she liked me, she 'twas alright
Then Nancy's eyes opened wide with delight


For twenty-five years, now we've been together
In good times in bad times tro' all kinds of weather
She gave me four big sons, they're so good you see
And a daughter, God help her, she's the image of me
