 The easy, fast & fun way to learn how to sing:

A rambling rover comes to town somewhere in the county Down 
He was only passing through, somehow feeling blue 
So many faces he had met and left without regret 
Still waiting for the chimes to ring and his soul to sing 

He found a pub where he could play, only for one night 
When suddenly he saw her eyes, desire at first sight 

Shot in the dark 
One step away from me 

And when he saw her pretty face, it was a castle in the clouds 
His aching heart was burning now and he felt no doubts 
He didn't dare to talk to her and so he fiddled for the crowd 
She stood first row in front of him his eyes were shining proudly 

He played a lovely fiddle tune and swept her off her feet 
And while he looked into her eyes his heart began to beat 
Collywobbles and the creeps, he went straight to the bar 
And when he had a lot of pints he sang Whiskey in the jar 

She drives him round the twist 
And now he can't resist 
Drunk as a fiddler's bitch 
And so he goes to make his stitch
