Donnybrook Fair

The first time I went to Donnybrook fair,
I met an old pal that I knew there,
The old pal's name was Ben,
And his old woman's name it was Old Mother Bendigo,
     Hotten ti hottenti addi io addi
     O come and lie close to me now.

The next time I went to Donnybrook fair,
I met an old pal that I knew there,
The old pal's name was Shake,
And his old woman's name it was Old Mother Shake-a-leg,
     Hotten ti hottenti addi io addi
     O come and lie close to me now.

The next time I went to Donnybrook fair,
I met an old pal that I knew there
The old pal's name was Nuts,
And his old woman's name it was Old Mother Funny Nuts,
     Hotten ti hottenti addi io addi
     O come and lie close to me now.

The last time I went to Donnybrook fair,
I met an old pal that I knew there
The old pal's name was Sticks,
And his old woman's name it was Old Mother Fiddlesticks,
     Hotten ti hottenti addi io addi
     O come and lie close to me now.
From Bushes and Briars, Occomore and Spratley
