One for the Morning Glory

Irish Song Lyrics - One for the Morning GloryAuthor: traditional

at the end of the day I like a little drink to raise my voice and sing
and another or two of a pint of brew and I'm ready for anything
at The Cross Keys Inn there were sisters four the landlord's daughters fair
and every night when they'd turn out the light I'd tip toe up the stairs singin'

One for the morning glory
two for the early dew
three for the man who whould stand his round
and four for the love of you my girl
four for the love of you

Well I got the call from foreign shores to go and fight the foe
Though I thought no more of the sisters four, still I was sad to go
we sailed away on a ship, the Morning Glory was her name
and we'd all fall down when the rum went 'round and we'd get up and start again CHORUS

well we sailed once more to our native shore farewell to the native sea
The Cross Keys Inn it was Beckonin' and my heart was full of glee
but there on the shore were the sisters four with a bundle on each knee
there were three little girls and a bouncin' boy and they all looked just like me CHORUS
