Spanish Lady Lyrics

Celtic Woman

As I came down to Dublin city,
At the hour of twelve at night,
Who should I see but the Spanish Lady,
Washing her feet by candle-light.
First she washed them, then she dried them
Over a fire of amber coal,
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so sweet about the soul.

CHORUS:
Whack fol the toora, loora laddy
Whack fol the toora loora lay
Whack fol the toora, loora laddy
Whack fol the toora loora lay

As I came back through Dublin city
At the hour of half-past eight
Who should I spy but the Spanish Lady
Brushing her hair in the broad daylight.
First she tossed it, then she brushed it,
On her lap was a silver comb.
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so fair since I did roam.

CHORUS

As I went back through Dublin city
As the sun began to set
Who should I spy but the Spanish Lady
Catching a moth in a golden net.
When she saw me then she fled me
Lifting her petticoat over her knee
In all my life I ne'er did see
A maid so shy as the Spanish Lady.

CHORUS...
