Text

I WILL NOT SIT ON THE GRASS SHE SAID
I'll not sit on the grass, she said,
Not be a love of thine,
For I hear you love a Connacht maid
And your heart is no longer mine, she said,
And your heart is no longer mine.

Oh I'll not marry an old man
Whose days are well nigh done,
And I'll not marry a young man
For he's fair for many a one, she said,
He's fair for many a one.

But I will climb a high high tree,
And rob a wild bird's nest,
And I'll bring back whatever I do find
To the arms I love the best, she said,
To the arms I love the best.

THE MIDLAND TOAST
Long roads and stoney ditches
And here's to nice girls
And to hell with riches.

THE CONNAGHT TOAST
Health and long life to you,
The woman of your choice to you,
Land without rent to you,
And death in Erin.
