Lark In The Morning

The Kerry Boys - KB3


Traditional The lark in the morning she rises off her nest She goes home in the evening with the dew all on her breast And like the jolly ploughboy she whistles and she sings She goes home in the evening with the dew all on her wings Oh, Roger the ploughboy he is a dashing blade He goes whistling and singing over yonder Green glade He met with dark eyed Susan, she's handsome I declare She is far more enticing then the birds all in the air One evening coming home from the rakes of the town The meadows been all mowed and the grass had been cut down Well who should chance to tumble all in the new-mown hay Oh, it's kiss me now or never love, this young girl she did say When twenty two weeks they were over and were past Her mother asked the reason why she thickened round the waist It was the handsome ploughboy, the young girl she did say For he caused me to tumble all in the new-mown hay Here's a health to young ploughboys wherever you may be Who like to have a bonnie lass a sitting on yourknee With a pint of good strong porter you'll whistle and you'll sing For a ploughboy is as happy as a prince or a king
