HUMOUR IS ON ME NOW, THE (Traditional Irish - Adapted by Richard Hayward) HUMOUR IS ON ME NOW, THE (Traditional Irish - Adapted by Richard Hayward) Merv Griffin - 1952 Ruby Murray - 1959 Ronnie Drew - 1999 Also recorded by: Carmel Quinn; Farmer Dan; Foster & Allen. As I went out one mornin', it bein' the month of May A farmer and his daughter I spied upon me way And the girl sat down quite calmly to the milkin' of her cow Sayin' I will and I must get married, for the humour is on me now Ah, be quiet you foolish daughter and hold your sinful tongue You're better free and single and happy while you're young But the daughter shook her shoulders and milked her patient cow Sayin' I will and I must get married, for the humour is on me now Ah, sure, who are you to turn me, that married young yourself And took me darlin' mother from off the single shelf Ah, sure, daughter, dear, go easy and milk your patient cow For a man may have his humour, but the humour is off me now Well, indeed I'll tell me mother the awful things you say Indeed I'll tell me mother this very blessed day Och, now, daughter, have a heart, dear, you'll start a fearful row So I will unless I marry, for the humour is on me now Och, now if you must be married, will you tell me who's the man And quickly she did answer, "There's William, James and John" A carpenter, a tailor, and a man to milk the cow For I will and I must get married, for the humour is on me now A carpenter's a sharp man and tailor's hard to face With his legs across the table and his threads about the place Ah, sure, John's a fearful tyrant and never lacks a row But I will and I must get married, for the humour is on me now Well, if you must be married, will you tell me what you'll do "Sure I will" the daughter answered, "Just the same as Ma and you" "I'll be mistress of me dairy, and me butter and me cow" And your husband too I'll venture, for the humour is on me now So at last the daughter married, and married well-to-do And loved her darlin' husband for a month, a year or two But John was all a tyrant, and she quickly rued her vow Sayin' I'm sorry that I got married, for the humour is off me now (Transcribed by Mel Priddle - October 2018)
