Oh they were all dressed out just like gentlemen’s sons
With their bright shining swords and new carbine guns
With their silver mounted pistols she observed them full soon
All because that she loved her Enniskillen Dragoon

The bright sons of Mars as they stood to the right
Their armour did shine like the bright stars at night
She says “Lovely Willie, you’ve enlisted too soon
To serve as a Royal Enniskillen Dragoon

“Oh beautiful Flora your pardon I crave
From now and forever I will act as your slave
Your parents insult you both morning and noon
For fear you should wed your Enniskillen Dragoon.”

“Oh now, dearest Willie you should mind what you say
Until I’m of age my parents I must obey
But you’re leaving Ireland they will surely change their tune
Saying ‘The Lord be he with you Enniskillen Dragoon’.”

Farewell Enniskillen, fare thee well for a while
And all around the borders of Erin’s green isle
And when the wars are over I’ll return in full bloom
And they’ll all welcome home their Enniskillen Dragoon

Now the war is over they’ve returned home at last
The regiments in Dublin and Willie got a pass
Last Sunday they were married and bold Willie was the groom
And now she enjoys her Enniskillen Dragoon
