Courtin' In The Kitchen Lyrics

Come single belle and beau, unto me pay attention
Don't ever fall in love, it's the devil's own invention
Once I fell in love with a maiden so bewitchin'
Miss Henrietta Bell out of Captain Kelly's Kitchen
Chorus:
With my tooral-ooral-I, and my tooral-ooral-addy
With my tooral-ooral-I, and my tooral-ooral-addy
At the age of seventeen, I was 'prenticed to a grocer
Not far from Stephen's Green, where Miss Henry used to
go sir
Her manners were sublime and she set my heart a-
twitchin'
And she invited me to a hooley in the kitchen
Chorus
Next Sunday being the day, we were to have the 'flare-
up'
I dressed myself quite gay and I frizzed and oiled my
hair up
The captain had no wife, faith he had gone out fishin'

And we kicked up high life down below stairs in the
kitchen
Chorus
With her arms around my waist, she slyly hinted
marriage
To the door in dreadful haste, came Captain Kelly's
carriage
Her eyes soon filled with hate and poison she was
spittin'
When the captain at the door, walked right into the
kitchen
Chorus
When the captain came downstairs, though he saw my
situation
In spite of all my prayers, I was marched off to the
station
For me they'd take no bail, but to get home I was
itchin'
And I had to tell the tale how I came into the kitchen
Chorus
I said she did invite me, but she gave a flat denial
For assault, she did indict me and I was sent for trial
She swore I robbed the house in spite of all her
screechin'
And I got six months 'hard' for my courtin in the
kitchen
Chorus
