VERSE 01: Pretty Mollie on the stile, with a smile like a fairy/O, Mollie is coy and shy;/She’s waiting for a gossoon coming to spoon,/Look at her roguish eye,/Faith and who’s this comin’ ‘long,/With a song light and airy/O, Shamrocks to her he brings,/An Irish heart that is true,/And a bushel o’ kisses too.
CHORUS: Mollie my sweet Colleen,/Mollie my Shamrock Queen;/You stole my heart of me;/So give me yours now Mollie do,/And pretty Mollie say on the stile,/Mollie said with a smile/You’re the finest boy in Paddy’s land/You can have my heart and you can have my hand/With a bushel o’ kisses too.
VERSE 02: Pretty Mollie and her charms in the arms of her laddie/O, Ain’t he the cooing dove?/It takes the Irish to spoon sunshine or moon,/They’re fine at makin’ love,/”Sure don’t smother me” says she,/Let me be won’t you Paddy/O, Paddy don’t do a thing,/He took a heart that was true,/And a bushel o’ kisses too.
