Song 203: "Shamrock Shore"

In early spring, when small birds sing, and lambs do sport and play
My way I took, my friends forsook and went to Dublin bay
I am what I ask a passenger and to England I sailed o’er
I bade farewell to all of my friends and I left the Shamrock shore

In London fair I did repare some pleasure for to find
I found it was a lovely place and pleasant to my mind
The ladies too were fair to view and rich the purse they wore
But none I saw that could compare to the Maids of the Shamrock shore
