DO YOU LOVE AN APPLE

(Irlande)

Do you love an apple ? Trad. Irlande

(Les basses ont le chant sur Ré - Les medium et hautes ne chantent que sur les refrains - Et merci au Bothy Band ! )

Do you love an apple ?
Do you love a pear ?
Do you love a laddie
With bonnie brown hair ?

Refrain (après chaque couplet) :

But still I love him,
I can't deny him
I'll be with him
Wherever he goes

Before I got married
I wore a black shawl
But since I got married
I wear bugger all

Refrain

He stood at the corner,
A fag in his mouth
Two hands in his pockets,
He whistled me out

Refrain

He works at the pier
For nine bob a week
Come Saturday night,
He comes rolling home drunk

Refrain

Before I got married
I'd sport and I'd play
But now, the cradle,
It gets in me way

Refrain

Do you love an apple ?
Do you love a pear ?
Do you love a laddie
With bonnie brown hair ?
But still I love him,
I can't deny him
I'll be with him
Wherever he goes
