Maids When You're Young
Traditional Irish Songs


An old man came courting me, hey ding a doorum dah
An old man came courting me, me being young
An old man came courting me, all for his wife to be
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

Chorus:
For he's got no faloo doo rum, fal diddle oo doo rum
He's got no faloo doo rum, fal diddle day
He's got no faloo doo rum, lost his ding doo reeum
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

When this old man comes to bed, hey ding a doorum dah
When this old man comes to bed, me being young
When this old man comes to bed, he lays like a lump of lead
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

Chorus

When this old man goes to sleep, hey ding a doorum dah
When this old man goes to sleep, me being young
When this old man goes to sleep, out of bed I do creep
Into the arms of a handsome young man

Chorus

I wish this old man would die, hey ding a doorum dah
I wish this old man would die, me being young
I wish this old man would die, I'd make the money fly
Girls for your sakes never wed an old man

Chorus

A young man is my delight, hey ding a doorum dah
A young man is my delight, me being young
A young man is my delight, he'll kiss you day and night
Maids when you're young never wed an old man

Chorus
