Oh Bonnie Lass


Oh Bonnie  
Lass            
By Cathy Collar 



Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
St Paddy has driven the snakes from all of Irish ground.
He took his fine shalalee and tapped it on the ground,
Now there’s nar a snake to be seen in all of Ireland.

Oh bonnie lass did you hear the news that’s goin’ round?
I found a four leaf clover growing on a fairy mound.
I stuck it in me hat and danced me all around
Now I will spread my Irish luck to all of Ireland.

Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
With my lucky clover a Leprechaun I found.
I followed him to his pot of shiny gold so round.
I stole his gold, took it to town and passed it all around.

Oh bonnie lass have you heard the news that’s goin’ round?
I have now been banished from my sweet Ireland.
That fairy gold turned to dust when touched by a man’s hand.
So like the snakes I’ll nar be seen in all of Ireland.
