Im a Man You Don't Meet Every Day
Composed and sung by Dan Collyer.
I've a neat little cabin that's built out of mud.
Not far from the County Kildare;
I've an acre or two where I grow my own spuds,
I've enough and a little to spare;
Sure I've not come over here seeking your jobs,
But a short little visit to pay;
So be aisy and free while you re drinking with me,
I'm a man you don't meet every day.
I've a neat little colleen that dwells in my cot.
Oh, happy, contended is she;
I've a thumping big lad that will say to his dad,
There's a man you don't meet every day;
And when for my leisure I'm out for a walk,
The boys they all stop and they stare;
And they say to each other as I'm passing by.
There s a man you don't meet every day.
