Blackbirds And Thrushes Lyrics

If all the young ladies were blackbirds and thrushes
If all the young ladies were blackbirds and thrushes
Then all the young men would go beating the bushes
Rye fol de dol diddle dol diddle dol day

If all the young ladies were ducks on the water
If all the young ladies were ducks on the water
Then all the young men would go swimming in after
Rye fol de dol diddle dol diddle dol day

If all the young ladies were rushes a-growing
If all the young ladies were rushes a-growing
Then all the young men would get scythes and go mowing
Rye fol de dol diddle dol diddle dol day

If the ladies were all trout and salmon so lively
If the ladies were all trout and salmon so lively
Then divil the man would go fishing on Friday
Rye fol de dol diddle dol diddle dol day

If all the young ladies were hares on the mountain
If all the young ladies were hares on the mountain
Then men with their hounds would be out without counting
Rye fol de dol diddle dol diddle dol day

If all the young ladies were blackbirds and thrushes
If all the young ladies were blackbirds and thrushes
Then all the young men would go beating the bushes
