Oh Billy Kirkpatrick was a man about town,
The girls in his village always asked him around,
He rode on his bicycle to school every day,
Just to go past the house of Bella Mulcahy,

On Wednesday last week she was down by the bay,
The lads would come past but she'd turn them away,
The finest in Dingle from the house on the hill,
Billy said one day I'll marry that girl yes I will,

I'd fight a gang of forty thieves, go the distance on my knees,
I'd never sleep a wink for you, Just to hear that you love me too.

La da da ah, la da da ah,
La da da ah, ah-ah,
La da da ah, la da da ah,
La da da ah, ah-ah,
La da da ah, la da da ah,
La da da ah, ah-ah,
La da da ah, la da da ah,
La da da ah, ah-ah,

I'd fight a gang of forty thieves, go the distance on my knees,
I'd never sleep a wink for you, Just to hear that you love me too.
I'd fight a gang of forty thieves, go the distance on my knees,
I'd never sleep a wink for you, Just to hear that you love me too.

He said hello Miss Bella may I sit with you here?
I'm Billy Kirkpatrick, been in your class for years,
She said I know you Billy, I've seen you about town,
And I've been waiting for years for you to sit down,

I'd fight a gang of forty thieves, go the distance on my knees,
I'd never sleep a wink for you, Just to hear that you love me too.
I'd fight a gang of forty thieves, go the distance on my knees,
I'd never sleep a wink for you, Just to hear that you love me too.
