The Boys They Go Courting
The boys they'll go courting dressed up very fine To court the fair ladies is all their design,
Is all their design, is all their design.
To court the fair ladies is all their design.
They'll hug, they'll kiss, they'll cheat, and they'll lie. They'll keep the girls up till they're ready to die Ready to die, ready to die
They'll keep the girls up till they're ready to die.
The boys they get sleepy the girls they will say Just pick up your hat and be going away,
Going away, going away,
Just pick up their hat and be going away.
They will pick up their hat and rush out in the storm Before they get home they'll lie out in some bam.
Lie out in some barn, lie out in some barn
Before they get home, they'll lie out in some barn
They'll get up in the morning they'll stagger and reel
Confound those pretty girls how sleepy I feel.
How sleepy I feel, How sleepy I feel Confound those pretty girls how sleepy I feel.
