Sarah McVeigh

Herly te ta ra ta ta te re te ti
Welcome all O folks
to the life of Sean the mighty
Young fellow of hope
but his soul getting naughty
not so old he was indeed
something in between twenty and eighty

Lara la ra ra ra tara ta ti
And move on to the next house
where is damsel Sarah McVeigh
A fair and a sweetheart
known all over the side of the county
But her father was
Ol' Mike the tough and mighty

Herly te ta ra ta ta te re te ti
Our boy with his ego
made a step of hazard and danger
On the door of the neighbour
he knocked and asked for pleasure
And the all-beauty queen
with his magic she let the lad enter

Lara la ra ra ra tara ta ti
While on the way to home
ol' Mike met the aging Peter
The man of the white hair
could not hold his chatter
So he spread the news abroad
about the affair of McVeigh daughter

Herly te ta ra ta ta te re te ti
And the raging sea
rushed to home storming
And the two birdies of love
had to stop the warming
While the mouth of ol'McVeigh
kept on cursing and cursing

Lara la ra ra ra tara ta ti
Amid the fight of two
the lady stood there shouting
And the seeker of joy
gave very nice a punching
While the raging sea
fell in on the floor without a moving

Herly te ta ra ta ta te re te ti
You can guess the rest
it is a story told in times a many
As the all-beauty queen
had lost a father and a nasty
And now she is orphan
of parents and the lovely

Lara la ra ra ra tara ta ti
O you who listen to me
keep away from the naughty
The devil is not yet a dead
and his victims are in bounty
Why bother with lust and love
if you'll end up, like Sarah McVeigh?

Poem of the Day

poet Walt Whitman

ARM’D year! year of the struggle!
No dainty rhymes or sentimental love verses for you, terrible year!
Not you as some pale poetling, seated at a desk, lisping cadenzas
