Near a Port by the sea lives Shamus Magee

And his wife, Pricilla, the Fortune Teller.

She has to work for her keep, in-between sleep,

‘cause that stingy old fart wouldn’t feed her.


Now the town thinks it sad, and some think it bad

That Shamus Magee is so tight with his money.

They make jokes ‘bout the guy, all on the sly,

And some of the jokes are not that funny.


But Shamus doesn’t care if they whispered and stare.

No, he never says a word, not so much as a peep!

His children needed tending, during fence mending

And supervised, closely, while they tended the sheep.
