Beautiful Isle O’Er The Sea

print

I will not be your sweetheart
I’ll tell you the reason why
My mother always told me
To pass a drunkard by

   Beautiful isle o’er the sea
   Beautiful isle o’er the sea
   Beautiful isle o’er the sea
   There’s someone waiting for me

Now young man I will tell you
If you want my heart my hand
You better quit your drinking
And be a sober man

Go prove yourself be faithful
Go prove yourself be true
And sometime in the future
Perhaps I’ll marry you
