MORNING GLORY
D. FLETT AND G. FLETCHER / BIG SECRET MUSIC
 
Chorus:

One for the Morning Glory

Two for the early Dew

Three for the man who will stand his round

And four for the love of you

Four for the love you me girl

 

 

At the end of day I like a little drink

To raise up me glass and sing

And an hour or two with the fine brown brew

And I’m ready for anything

At the Crosskeys Inn there were sisters four

The landlords’ daughters fair

And every night when they’d put out the light

I would tiptoe up the stairs

 

Chorus:

 

Well I got the call from foreign shores

To go and fight the foe

Of the sisters four I thought no more

But still I was sad to go

So I sailed away on a ship

The Morning Glory was her name

And we’d all fall down when the rum went round

And we’d get up and start again

 

Chorus:

 

Well I’ll sail once from my native shore

Fare well to your raging seas

And the Crosskeys Inn it was begging in

And me heart was filled with glee

For there on the shore were the sisters four

A bundle upon each knee

There were three little girls and a bouncing boy

And they all looked just like me!

 

Chorus: X2
