"Love Is Pleasin'" as written by Ciaran Padraig Maire Bourke, Ronald Joseph Drew, Barney Mckenna and Luke Kelly....
Oh love is teasing and love is pleasing
and love's a treasure when first it's new,
but as love grows older, at length grows colder
and fades away like the morning dew.

I left my mother and I left my father
I left my brothers and my sisters too.
I left my home and my fond relations
I left them all for the love of you.

Now if I had known before I courted
that love would be so hard to hold
I'd have locked my heart in a box of silver
and bound it fast with a key of gold.

Oh love is teasing and love is pleasing
and love's a treasure when first it's new,
but as love grows older, at length grows colder
and fades away like the morning dew.
