Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Emerald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?

'Twas over in old Ireland near the town of Cushendall,
One morn I met a damsel there, the fairest of them all;
'Twas by me own affections and me money she did go,
She told me she belonged to where the blarney roses grow.

Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Emerald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?

Her cheeks were like the roses and her hair a raven hue,
Before that she had done with me, she had me raving, too;
She left me sorely stranded, not a coin she left, you know,
And she told me she belonged to where the blarney roses grow.

Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Emerald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?

They've roses in Killarney and the same in County Clare,
But 'pon my word those roses, boys, you can't see anywhere;
She blarney'd me and, by the powers, she left me broke, you know,
Did this damsel that belonged to where the blarney roses grow.

Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Em'rald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?

A-cushla gra mo chroi, me boys, she wants to leave with I,
If you belong to Ireland then yourself belongs to me;
Her Donegal come-all-ye brogue, it captured me, you know,
Bad luck to her, good luck to where the blarney roses grow.

Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Emerald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?

Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
Some say down in Limerick Town and more say in Mayo;
Somewhere in the Emerald Isle of this I'd like to know,
Can anybody tell me where the blarney roses grow?
