izquierdaCome Up The Stairsderecha

Young Molly was handsome and pretty
I've washed and put on me new coat
And off to the mainland a courtin'
I went in me small little boat

Come up the Stairs, up the stairs,
Come up the Stairs Molly O
Come up the Stairs, up the Stairs,
Bring something to warm me old bones

Well I' hadn't gone more than four furlongs,
no more than ten minutes afloat
When a big wave came up and capsized us
Meself and me small rowin' boat
Well up came great big sea serpent
He was forty long feet now or more
And he'd one look myself and me features
And he offered to take me to shore

"Oh where are you goin' in such weather?"
"I was going courtin' Molly,"says I.
"For there's no young ones left on the island
So how's a young man to get by?"

Why don't you and Molly get married
And then you can both stay at home
For it's better to suffer in marriage
Than catchin' your death in the cold

Well tonight I will ask her to marry
And I'm hopin' that she will agree
For I'd rather be poor and be married
Than riskin' me life in the sea

Come up the Stairs, up the stairs,
Come up the Stairs Molly O
Come up the Stairs, up the Stairs,
It's yourself can be warmin' me bones
