[Verse 1] F#m Molly dear now did you hear the news that's going round B7 E7 Down in a corner of my heart a love is what you've found F#m Every time I look into your Irish eyes so blue E7 A They seem to whisper darling boy, my love is all for you [Chorus] A E7 Oh, Molly, my Irish Molly, my sweet achusla dear C# F#m B7 E7 I'm fairly off my trolley, my Irish Molly when you are near A E7 C# Springtime you know is ringtime, come dear now don't be slow F#m Change your name, go out with game, A E7 A begorrah wouldn't I do the same my Irish Molly O [Verse 2] Molly dear now did you hear I furnished up the flat Three little cosy rooms with a bath and "welcome" on the mat It's five pounds down and two a week, we'll soon be out of debt It's all complete except they haven't brought the cradle yet
