V1-There’s a boy up on Lemon Hill,
if I can’t catch him, nobody will.
A little bit sassy, little bit sweet,
tastiest morsel you ever did meet.
Six foot two and eyes so dark-
It’s no wonder he would break my heart.
Hey dilly, dilly, and a derry, derry oh,
hey dilly, dilly and a derry, derry oh
V2-That brawny lad, by the name of Will,
lived in a house on top of Lemon Hill.
I followed him home and gave him a kiss
but Molly Bloom wasn’t happy with this.
A little bit brassy and long in the tooth.
What she couldn’t win was mine to lose. (Cho)
V3-Well I caught me the boy up on Lemon Hill.
He spent all my money, can’t pay a bill.
All he gave to me is a babe to raise
and heartache to last all of my days.
So I gave him the boot o’er to Molly Bloom-
now that pair can sing this tune. (Cho)
