Oh! the boys of Kilkenny are brave roaring
And if ever they meet with the nice little maids,
They’ll kiss them, and coax them, and spend
their money free,
And of all towns in Ireland Kilkenny for me,
And of all towns, &c.

In the town of Kilkenny there runs a clear
In the town of Kilkenny there lives a fair
Hercheeks are like roses, her lips much the
Like a dish of fresh strawberries smother’d in
Fal de ral, de ral, de ral, lal, ra, la, la, la

Her eyes are as black as Kilkenny’s large coal,
Which through my poor bosom have burnt a
big hole;
Her mind, like its rivers, is mild, clear and
But her hear is more hard than its marble,
I’m sure.
Fal de ral, &c.

Kilkenny’s is pretty town, and shines where
it stands,
And the more I think on it the more my
heart warms;
For if was in Kilkenny I’d think myself at
For its there I’d get sweathearts, but here I
get none.
Fal de ral, &c.
