While in the merry month of May from me home I started,
Saluted father dear, kissed me darling mother,
Then off to reap the corn, leave where I was born,
Bought a pair of brogues rattling o'er the bogs

Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road

Started by daylight next morning blithe and early,
Thats a Paddy's cure whenever he's on drinking.
At me curious style, 'twould set your heart a bubblin'
I was almost tired of the rocky road to Dublin.
One, two, three four, five,
all the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah !
In Dublin next arrived, I thought it such a pity
So then I took a stroll, all among the quality;
Something crossed me mind, when I looked behind,
Enquiring for the rogue, they said me Connaught brogue

Hunt the Hare and turn her down the rocky road

Landed on the quay, just as the ship was sailing.
When I jumped aboard, a cabin found for Paddy.
Danced some hearty jigs, the water round me bubbling;
Or better for instead on the rocky road to Dublin.
One, two, three four, five,
all the way to Dublin, Whack follol de rah !
Well the boys of Liverpool, when we safely landed,
Blood began to boil, temper I was losing;
"Hurrah me soul" says I, me Shillelagh I let fly.
With a load "hurray !" joined in the affray.

Hunt the Hare and turn her down
Whack follol de rah !
