The Flower of Magherally-O

(Trad. Arr. N. Parsons/G. Dunne)

One pleasant summer's morning when all the flowers were blooming O
Nature was adorning and the wee birds they were singing O
I met my love near Bambridge town my charming blue eyed lassie o
She's the Queen of the County Down, my Flower of Magherally O

With admiration I did gaze upon that blue eyed lassie O
Adam never had so much joy when he saw Eve in Eden O
Her skin was like the lily white, that blooms in yonder garden O
She is my Queen and my hearts delight, my Flower of Magherally O

Her yellow hair in wringlets fair, her boots of spanish leather O
Her bonnet with blue ribbons on, her scarlet scarf and feather O
Like Venus bright she did appear, my charming blue eye'd Sally O
She is the girl that I love dear, my Flower of Magherally O

And I hope the day will surely come when we'll join hands together O
And its then I'll bring my true love home in spite of wind and weather O
And let them all say what they will and let them reel and rally O
For I will wed the girl I love, my Flower of Magherally O
