SALLY, DON'T DALLY.

A darling little Irish lass thro' blarney won my heart;
She's a bright-eyed colleen, and from her I could not part;
I followed her across the sea- her folks had gone before-
And her father said to Sally when I landed on this shore:
Sally, don't dally, trick to O'Malley;
Give your consent if to-night he should call.
he loves you dearly, treat him sincerely
Marry O'Malley, or no man at all.
Said I, my colleen, plight your word and wait a year for me;
And then a I'll have as neat a place as ever you did see;
She said, I will; Pat, don't you fear. The time at last has flown,
And to-night she'll get the deeds and right to a cottage all her own.- Ref.
