Limerick Rake
  • Bookmark this page

I am a young fellow that's easy and bold, In Castletown conners I'm very well known. In Newcastle West I spent many a note, With Kitty and Judy and Mary. My father rebuked me for being such a rake, And spending my time in such frolicsome ways, But I ne'er could forget the good nature of Jane, Agus fágaimíd siúd mar atá sé. My parents had reared me to shake and to mow, To plough and to harrow, to reap and to sow. But my heart being airy to drop it so low, I set out on high speculation. On paper and parchment they taught me to write, In Euclid and Grammar they opened my eyes, And in Multiplication in truth I was bright, Agus fágaimíd siúd mar atá sé. If I chance for to go to the town of Rathkeale, The girls all round me do flock on the square. Some give me a bottle and others sweet cakes, To treat me unknown to their parents, There is one from Askeaton and one from the Pike, Another from Arda, my heart was beguiled, Tho' being from the mountains her stockings are white, Agus fágaimíd siúd mar atá sé. To quarrel for riches I ne'er was inclined, For the greatest of misers must leave them behind. I'll purchase a cow that will never run dry, And I'll milk her by twisting her horn. John Damer of Shronel had plenty of gold, And Devonshire's treasure is twenty times more, But he's laid on his back among nettles and stones, Agus fágaimíd siúd mar atá sé. This cow can be milked without clover or grass,
