I met Katie Caffey and her neat baby
Behind on her back strapped on
She had an oul ash plant in her hand
To drive the oul donkey along
Enquiring in every farmhouse
As along the road she passed
Oh where would she get an old pot to mend
And where would she get an ass

There’s a hairy ass fair in the County Clare
In a place they call Spancil Hill
Where my brother James got a wrap of a hames
And poor Paddy they tried to kill
They loaded him up in an oul ass and cart
As along the road to go
Oh bad luck to the day that he roved away
For to join with the tinkers band
