With a down-a-derry With a down-a-down-a-derry "Our hearts could rhyme," said she "'Tis flattered I'm," said she "But oh, ah me, you see, you see You see, you see, I happen to be I happen to be the mother of three A wife already and mother of three Of three, of three, of three, of three, of three The mother of three!" The jolly tar he laughed a laugh "'Tis for the best, my bonny That you won't be my better half" With a hey and a nonny With a hey and a nonny "I near forgot on seeing you That I've a wife in Kerry In Spain and also Timbuktu" With a down-a-derry With a down-a-down-a-derry "You've got me thinking twice Goodbye to shoes and rice For oh, ah me, just now you see Just now you see I happen to be I happen to be the husband of three A-spliced already and husband of three Of three, of three, of three, of three, of three The husband of three!"
