And who are you me pretty little maid, and who are you me darlin' (2x) She answered me quite modestly I am me mother's darlin' Chorus With me tyre aye ah fall a diddle ah Tyre ah fall a diddle derry oh And will you come to me mother's house when the sun is shining brightly I'll open the door and let you in and the devil a one will hear us So I went to her house in the middle of the day when the sun was shginin' brughtly She opened the door and let me in and devil the one did hear us She took me horse by the bridle and bit and led him to the stable Sayin' there's plenty of oats for the soldier's horse to eat if he is able And she took me by the lilly white hand and she led me to the table Sayin' there's plenty of wine for the soldier boy to drink if he is able then I got up and made the ed and made it nice and lazy Then I got up and laid hed down sayin' lassy are you able And there we lay till the break of day and devil the one could hear us Then I rose and put on me clothes sayin' lassy I must leave you And when will you return again and when will we get married When broken shells make Christmas bells we might get married
