The Last Lovely Lassie

I thought to be married at Easter, Easter, Easter, oh Easter,
I thought to be married at Easter,
But here I am left as a maid
But here I am left as a maid


The house had been whitewashed and painted, painted, painted, yes painted
The house had been whitewashed and painted
And a new feather bed on the floor
And a new feather bed on the floor.

But he married a one for her fortune, fortune, fortune, yes fortune,
But he married a one for her fortune,
A cow and an acre of land,
A cow and an acre of land.

Oh I wonder when I will get married, married, married, oh married
Oh I wonder when I will get married,
For my beauty's beginning to fade
For my beauty's beginning to fade.

I am left on the shelf like a teapot, teapot, teapot, oh teapot,
I am left on the shelf like a teapot,
Without either handle or spout;
Without either handle or spout.

Yes there's three lovely lasses in tandem, tandem, tandem, yes tandem,
Yes there's three lovely lasses in tandem,
To draw me on my wedding day;
To draw me on my wedding day.


This is a sequel to the Three Lovely Lasses of Banion that Delia Murphy made famous. I think my Dad wrote this, but have no evidence to back me up.
