Lyrics:As I went out through Dublin City
At the hour of twelve o´clock at night
Who should I
see but a Spanish lady
Washing her feet by candle light
First she washed them and then
she dried them
Over a fire of ambry coals
In all my life I never did see
A maid
so sweet about the soles

Whack fol the toor a loor a laddy
Whack fol the toor
a loor a lay
Whack fol the toor a loor a laddy
Whack fol the toor a loor a lay


I stopped to look but the watchman passed
Says he, "Young fellow, the night is late

Along with you home or I will wrestle you
Straight away through the Bridewell gate"

I threw a look to the Spanish lady
Hot as the fire of ambry coals
In all my
life I never did see
A maid so sweet about the soles

As I walked back through
Dublin City
As the dawn of day was o´er
Who should I see but the Spanish lady

When I was weary and footsore
She had a heart so filled with loving
And her love she
longed to share
In all my life I never did see
A maid who had so much to spare

Now she´s no mot for a puddle swaddy
With her ivory comb and her mantle so fine
But
she´d make a wife for the Provost Marshall
Drunk on brandy and claret wine
I got a
look from the Spanish lady
Hot as a fire of ambry coals
In all my life I never did
meet
A maid so sweet about the soles

I´ve wandered north and I´ve wandered
south
By Stoney Batter and Patrick´s Close
Up and around by the Gloucester Diamond

And back by Napper Tandy´s house
Old age has laid her hands upon me
Cold as a
fire of ashy coals
But where is the lonely Spanish lady
Neat and sweet about the
soles?
As I was leaving Dublin City
On that morning sad of heart
Lonely was I
for the Spanish lady
Now that forever we must part
But still I always will remember

All the hours we did enjoy
But then she left me sad at parting
Gone forever was
my joy
