Rings On My Fingers

Irish Song Lyrics - Rings On My Fingers

Sure I've got rings on my fingers
bells on my toes
elephants to ride upon
my little Irish Rose
So come to your Nabob and next Patrick's Day
Beeeee, Mistress mumbo, jumbo
jijiboo Jay O'Shea

Jim O'Shea was cast away
upon an Indian isle
The natives there they likes his hair
they liked his native smile
The called him Cheif Panjanderum
Nabob of them all
They called him Jijiboo Jay
they rigged him up so gay
so he wrote to Dublin Bay
to his sweetheart for to say CHORUS

O're the sea went Rose Magee
to see her Nabob grand
she sat within his Palanquin
and when she took his hand
He led her to his harem
where he had wives galore
she started shedding a tear
he said my dear don't fear
these wives that I keep here
are just for ornament my dear CHORUS

In Emerald Green he robed his queen
to share with him his throne
mid eastern charms and waving palms
they'd shamrocks Irish grown
All the way from Dublin
to Nabob Jay O'SHea
But in his palace so fine
Should Rose for Ireland pine
With smiles her face will shine
when he murmers sweetheart mine CHORUS
