TEDDY O'NEAL.

I dreamt but last night, oh! bad cess to the dreaming,
Sure I'd die if I thought 'twould come truly to pass;
I dreamt, while the tears down my pillow were streaming,
That Teddy was courting another fair lass.
Oh! didn't I wake with a weeping and wailing.
The grief of the thought was too much to conceal;
My mother cried, Nora, child, what is your ailing?
But all I could utter was Teddy O'Neal-
My mother cried, Nora, child, what is your ailing?
But all I could utter was Teddy O'Neal.

I went to the cabin he danced his wild jigs in,
As neat a mud palace as ever was seen;
Considering it served to keep poultry and pigs in,
I'm sure you'll allow 'twas most decent and clean;
But now all around it looks cold, sad and dreary.
All sad, and all silent, no piper, no reel;
Not even the sun through the casement shines cheery
Since I lost the dear darling boy, Teddy O'Neal-
Not even the sun through the casement shines cheery
Since I lost the dear darling boy, Teddy O'Neal.

Shall I ever forget when the big ship was ready.
And the moment was come for my love to depart;
How I sobbed like a spalpeen, good-bye to you, Teddy,
With a tear on my cheek and a stone on my heart?
He said 'twas to better his fortune he wandered.
But what would be gold to the joy I should feel
If he'd only come back to me, honest and loving,
Still poor, yet my own darling Teddy O'Neal-
If he'd only come back to me, honest and loving,
Still poor, yet my own darling Teddy O'Neal.
