Sarah Jane Dooley, you take it quite coolly
Whenever I ask you to wed:
I've courted you lone and I've courted you strong,
And the divil a "yis "have you said;
But mind you, me darlin', there's no use in quar'lin',
From you, June, I never can part;
So don't let us tarry; come on, let us marry
Before you have broken my heart.
Sarah Jane, I'm Insane with the love I've bestowed upon you;
Name the day; don't delay, or you'll surely break my heart in two.
Dinnis McCarty, at Finnegan's party,
Was savin' that you was a flirt;
I hunted him down like an Irish bloodhonn',
And I walked on his face in the dirt;
I fixed him completely, disfigured him neatly;
I jabbed all the wind from his lungs;
Now, darlin', don't tarry; come on, let as marry,
And stop all their "blatherin' "tongues. - Chorus.
Sarah Jane Dooley. I'm stuck on you truly,
Now tell me you'll be me own wife;
You'll drive me clean "daffy "a-givin' me "taffy;"
Say no, and I'll end me own life;
Oh, darlin', don't tease me, I'm tryin' to please ye;
Don't say that we're better apart;
Consent to the marriage and I'll get the carriage.
Before you have broken my heart.- Chorus.
