Lyrics:

Oh, me name is Mick McGuire
And I'll quickly tell to you
Of a young girl I admired
Called Katy Donahue
She was fair and fat and forty
And believe me when I say
That whenever I came in at the door
You could hear her mammy say

Johnny, get up from the fire
Get up and give the man a seat
Can't you see it's old McGuire
And he's courting your sister Kate
You know very well he owns a farm
A wee bit out of the town
Arragh, get up out of that, you impudent brat
And let Mr McGuire sit down

Now, the first time that I met her
Was at a dance at Tarmagee
And I very kindly asked her
If she'd dance a step with me
Then I asked if I could see her home
If she'd be going my way
And whenever I come in at the door
You could hear her mammy say

Johnny, get up from the fire
Get up and give the man a seat
Can't you see it's Mr McGuire
And he's courting your sister Kate
You know very well he owns a farm
A wee bit out of the town
Arragh, get up out of that, you impudent brat
And let Mr McGuire sit down

Ah, but now that we are married
Sure her mother's changed her mind
Because I spent the money
That my father left behind
She hasn't got the decency
To bid me time of day
Now whenever I come in at the door
You'd hear the old one say

Johnny, come up to the fire
Come up, you're sitting in the draft
Can't you see it's old McGuire
And he nearly drives me daft
I don't know what gets in him
For he's always on the tare
Arragh, just sit where you are and never you dare
To give old McGuire the chair

I don't know what gets in him
For he's always on the tare
Just sit where you are and never you dare
To give old McGuire the chair

I don't know what gets in him
For he's always on the tare
Arragh, just sit where you are and never you dare
To give old McGuire the chair
