Mrs. McGrath - lyrics

playlist Playlist
Now, Mrs. McGrath, the sergeant said,
Would you like to make a soldier out of your son Ted?
With a scarlet coat and a big cocked hat,
Now Mrs. McGrath, wouldn't you like that?
Now Mrs. McGrath lived on the seashore
For the space of seven long years or more,
Till a great big ship came sail into the bay,
Says, It's my son Ted, will you clear the way,
Oh captain, dear, where have you been,
Have you been sailing in the Meditereen,
And have you any news of my son Ted,
Is the poor boy living or is he dead?
Well, up comes Ted, without any legs,
And in their place was some wooden pegs.
She kissed him a dozen times or two,
Saying, Holy Moses, is it you,
Now was you drunk, or was you blind,
When you left your two fine legs behind,
Or was it from walking by the sea,
Wore your two fine legs from the knees away?
No, I was not drunk, and I was not blind
When I left my two fine legs behind,
A cannon ball on the fifth of May,
Took my two fine legs from the knees away.
