Irish Song Lyrics - Never Wed an Old ManAuthor: trad

MAIDS WHEN YOU'RE YOUNG NEVER WED AN OLD MAN An old man came courting her Hey ding a dorum dum An old man came courting her she being young An old man came courting her All for to marry her Maids when you're young never wed an old man For he's got no faloodorum, fadidle di dorum For he's got no faloodoorum, fadidle day He's got no faloorum,he's lost his ding dorum So maids when you're young, never wed an old man Now when they went to the church Hey ding a dorum dum When they went to the church, she being young When they went to the church, he left her in the lurch Maids when you're young, never wed an old man Now when they went to our bed, Hey ding a dorum dum Now when they went to our bed, she being young When they went to our bed, he neither done nor said Maids when you're young never wed an old man She slung her leg over him Hey ding a dorum dum She slung her leg over him she being young She slung her leg over him damn nearly smothered him Maids when you're young never wed an old man Now when he went to sleep Hey ding a dorum dum Now when we went to sleep, she being young When we went to sleep, out of bed she did creep Into the arms of a handsome young man Now he's got his falodoorum, fa didle dodoorum He's got his faloodoorum, fa didle all day He's got his falodoorum a right big my dingdorum so maids when you're young never wed an old man
