Text

I THANK YOU MA'AM
'What brought you into my room
Into my room, into my room,
What brought you into my room?
Said the mistress unto Dan.

'I came here to court your daughter, ma'am,
Sure I thought it no great harm, ma'am;
'O Dan my dear, you're welcome here.' I
Thank you ma'am, says Dan.

'How came you to know my daughter, my
Daughter, my daughter,
how came you to know my daughter?
Said the mistres unto Dan.
'Going to the well for water, to raise the
Can I taught her.
'O Dan my dear, you're welcome here.' I
Thank you ma'am, says Dan.

This couple they got married, got
Married, got Married,
This couple they got married, Miss
Elizabeth and Dan.
And he lived with her father, and her mother
And his charmer, O,
And they went for ever after by the
Name of 'Thank you ma'am.'


I wish I was in Banagher
Sitting on the grass,
In my hand a bottle of wine
And on my knee a lass.


O Bill, O Bill, O cousin Jane,
Come out now never mind the rain,
She's outward bound to Port of Spain
O Maggie, Sarah!
She's off, upon the starboard tack,
Run up and dip the ensign, Jack,
O ain't it like the old time back
Upon the Gara.
