Lyrics

Oh, me name is Mick McGuire and I'll quickly tell to you
Of a young girl I admired called Kitty Donahue.
She was fair and fat and forty and believe me when I say
That whenever I came in at the door you could hear her mammy say.

cho:"Johnny get up from the fire, get up and give the man a sate (seat),
Can't you see it's Mr McGuire and he's courting you sister Kate?
Ah you know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out of the town,
Arragh, get up out of that you impudent brat and let Mr McGuire sit down."

Now the first time that I met her was at the dance at Tarmagee,
And I asked her very kindly if she'd dance a step with me,
Then I asked if I could see her home, if I'd be going her way
And whenever I came in at the door you could hear her mammy say:

Ah, but now that we are married, sure her mother's changed her mind,
Just because I spent the legacy her father left behind,
She hasn't got the decency to bid me time of day,
Now whenever I come in at the door you'd here the auld one say:

Last chorus:
"Johnny, come up to the fire, come up you're sitting in a draft,
Can't you see it's Mr McGuire, and he nearly drives me daft,
Ah, I don't know what gets into him, for he's always on the tare,
Arragh, just sit where you are and never you dare to give
Mr. McGuire the chair."

Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Ah, I don't know what gets into him, for he's always on the tear,
Arragh, just sit where you are and never you dare to give Mr McGuire
the chair."
