GUEST,Paddy(1) Lyr Req: Keep Your Legs Together Coming Home (7) ADD: Fagins Wake (Foster & Allen) 25 Mar 00

Lyrics as requested from a recording by Foster and Allen, but don't hold that against the song !!!


Daughter dearest daughter there's a wake down in Kildare
And the lodger, the lodger will surely be there
I know he's tall and handsome, I know he's tall and straight
But keep your legs together coming home from the wake

Oh mother dearest mother, what an awful thing to say
I'll keep away from Fagan until my wedding day
Although he's tall and handsome, although he's tall and straight
I'll keep my legs together comimg home from the wake
When Maty reached the waking house 'twas young and gay she felt
Fagan sat down by the bed and drank the dead man's health
Well gra mo chroi 'twas sad to see the oul' man on the bed
A mean oul' crature when alive, he's a fine man now he's dead

Twas early the next morning, they walked down the boreen
She kept admiring Fagan, the best she'd ever seen
Temptation proved too much for her she let him have his way
As Fagan says the best of friends get parted every day

Nine months have been and gone since Fagan rang the bell
The anxious wait has been like years for fear of any swell
Young and foolish though they were, of them I'll speak no ill
They was no cause to fret you see, 'cause Mary took took the pill
