To my darling I will always prove true,
And look on her with a smile of love;
Like a sunbeam she is beautiful and bright,
With eyes like the little stars above.
She's the fairest In all creation,
Pretty Peggy, charming creature;
Pretty Peggy, darling loved one,
Ah! she's like a little bird in the Spring.
When you're in her company for a while.
Just look at her curly jet black hair;
Her face is always brightened with a smile,
Faith! none with my jewel can compare.-Chorus.
The day is coming when I'll wed this pearl,
The thought of it cheers me on my way;
The bells will ring, and the colleens will sing,
When she names the happy wedding day.-Chorus.
