Oi, me achin’ head!
nor suffer the throbbin’
‘tis robbin’ me life of a ball.
Oi, hush ya the drama!
ha’e no pity for that
a screech of the cat in me skull.
Oi, laugh and be light!
wipe off the frown on yer face
know yer place in the scheme of it all.
Oi, give me a hug!
‘tis you I’ve been missin’
for kissin’ your lips cures it all.
I’ve been the Tom astray
wanderin’ ‘yon ‘twixt here and away
but you are me hearth and home
and from you, me heart will never roam.
