American Old Time Song Lyrics: 01 Mary Ann Mclaughlin

Mary ann Mclaughlin
Copyright, 1878, by Geo. Mollineux.
In a cosy cottage painted green,
About three miles from here.
There lives a pretty Irish queen,
To me she does prove dear.
Her mother takes in washing,
And the girl helps to keep up the trade;
Sunday when I go for to see her,
These words to her I'd say:
Mary Ann McLaughlin, don't you cry,
Take that nprou from your eye;
Don't you let the neighbors hear you sigh,
And we will married be bye-and-bye.
Now soon I'm going to married be,
Of course I'll settle down;
I'll buy a house, also a farm,
A little way out of town.
Oh! then it will be joyfud,
When, as cosy as a mouse,
To see the young O'Malleys,
Playing tag around the house.- Chorus.
