...folks wants to be chewin',
O chone!
If he came to my door wid his cane on a twirl,
Fur to thry to make love to you, Biddy, my girl,
Ah, wouldn't I send him away wid a whirl,
O chone!

O chone!
In spite of his dressin' so.

Let him put on more wrinkles than ever was seen,

...Young Colin was as stout a boy 
As ever gave a maiden joy; 
But long in vain he told his tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 
Ah why, the whining shepherd cried, 
Am I alone your smiles denied? 
I only tell in vain my tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 

True Colin, said the laughing dame, 
You only whimper out your flame, 
Others do more than sigh their tale 
To black-eyed Biddy of the Dale. 

He took the hint &c....Read More

by Masefield, John't we all have women in? 
Bess Evans now, or Sister Polly, 
Or those two housemaids at the Folly? 
Let someone nip to Biddy Price's, 
They'd all come in a brace of trices. 
Rose Davies, Sue, and Betsy Perks; 
One man, one girl, and damn all Turks."

We'll have the girls in when it's gone." 
So round the g in went, hot and heady, 
Hot Hollands punch on top of deady. 

Hot Hollands punch on top of stout

...I'm a rattling boy from Dublin town,
I courted a girl called Biddy Brown,
Her eyes they were as black as sloes,
She had black hair and an aquiline nose. 

Chorus --

Whack fal de da, fal de darelido,
Whack fal de da, fal de darelay,
Whack fal de da, fal de darelido,
Whack fal de da, fal de darelay. 

One night I met her with another lad,
Says I, Biddy, I've caught you, by dad,
I never thought you were half so ...Read More

...our mackintoshes, waders warm and dry,
We waited for the wreckage to come swirling into reach,
Ralph, Vasey, Alistair, Biddy, John and I.

Then roller into roller curled
And thundered down the rocky bay,
And we were in a water world
Of rain and blizzard, sea and spray,
And one against the other hurled
We struggled round to Greenaway.
Bless?d be St Enodoc, bless?d be the wave,
Bless?d be the springy turf, we pray, pray to thee,
Ask for our children all happy days you ...Read More
