One Amfine summer's Cmorning, both Egallant and Amgay, AmTwenty-four Dladies went Eout on the Cquay, And a Amregiment of Dsoldiers it Edid pass them Cby, A Amdrummer and Cone of them Esoon caught his Ameye. He went to his comrade and to him did say, "Twenty-four ladies I saw yesterday, Oh, but one of those ladies she has me heart won, And if she denies me then surely I'm done." "Go to this lady and tell her your mind Tell her she's wounded your poor heart inside. Go and tell her she's wounded your poor heart, full sore, And if she denies you what can she do more?" So early next morning the young man arose, Dressed himself up in a fine suit of clothes, With a watch in his pocket and a cane in his hand, Saluting the ladies he walked down the strand. He went up to her and he said "Pardon me, Pardon me lady for making so free, Oh me fine honored lady, you have me heart won, And if you deny me then surely I'm done." "Be off little drummer, now what do you mean? For I'm the lord's daughter of Ballycasteen. Oh, I'm the lord's daughter that's honored, you see, Be off little drummer, you're making too free." He put on his hat and he bade her farewell Saying "I'll send my soul down to heaven or hell. For with this long pistol that hangs by my side, Oh, I'll put an end to my own dreary life." "Come back little drummer, and don't take it ill, For I do not want to be guilty of sin, To be guilty of innocent blood for to spill. Come back little drummer, I'm here at your will." "We'll hire a car and to Bansheer we'll go. There we'll be married in spite of our foes. Oh, but what can they say when it's over and done, But I fell in love with the roll of your drum?"
