      ‘Sly little Cupid has knocked me stupid;

       In grief I mourn, for upon my oath;
       My frame’s declining, I’m so repining
       For Hannah Healy, the pride of Howth

‘The Northern Lights of Aberdeen are what I long   

    to see;
The Northern Lights of Aberdeen, that’s where I

    long to be.
I’ve been a wand’rer all of my life and many a

    sight I’ve seen.
God speed the day when I’m on my way to my

    home in Aberdeen’
