No. 71, Mr. W. H. Gills Manx National Music.
O, Cashen has gone to the fishing,
And glad enough is he to go;
His wife has a tongue like a mill-wheel,
The house that she keeps is a show.
I fancy hell find consolations,
Theres lots of nice girls at Kinsale;
And Cashens the man for the ladies,
He knows how to tell them the tale.
Well miss him, though, yes, men, well miss him;
For Cashens a boy full of bree;
The nights that weve spent in this parlour,
With stories and songs of the sea!
Fill up ! Heres good wishes to Cashen,
Good catches, and kishens of gold;
May none of the company present
Eer marry a wife thats a scold!
P. W. CAINE.
