HAYMAKER

Did you ever sail the seven seas,

Travel the lands, marvel at these?

Then you never saw a sight that would please,

Like the face of Rosie O'shay

She is fairer than the golden corn,

That dresses the fields on harvester's morn

Here in the land of promises born,

Lucky was I for to see

Her father, he hired me to work on the land,

Earn every penny that passed through my hand

Now I'm the envy of every man,

For she is so pretty and fair

"Haymaker, while the sun shines", she said,

"Carry my heart far away"

"Haymaker, we'll capture the moon", she said,

"Tell every star there's a ransom to pay"

Did you ever taste the finest wine,

Fit for a king, the purest of vine?

Still you would not know, a pleasure so fine,

As the kiss of Rosie O'shay
