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!"
