    This is an old Irish folk song made popular by the band The Dubliners n the 1970's.

    Its a fun song to sing with a very Irish chorus :)

    "The Spanish Lady"
    Traditional Irish

    As I came back through Dublin City
    At the hour of twelve at night
    Who should I spy but a Spanish lady
    Washing her feet by the candlelight
    First she washed them, then she dried them
    Over a fire of amber coals
    In all me life I ne'er did see
    A maid so sweet about the soul

    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Ray lady
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rye eh

    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 by the Chapel Gate
    First she brushed it, then she combed it
    On her lap was a silvery comb
    In all me life I ne'er did see
    A maid so fair since I did roam

    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rah lady
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rah eh

    I stopped to look but the Watchman passed
    Says he young fella now the night is late
    Away with ya now before I wrestle you
    Straight back through the Bridewell gate

    I threw a kiss to the Spanish Lady
    Hotter than fire from Ambery coals
    In all me life I ne'er did see a maid so sweet about the soles

    Whack for the Too Rah Looh Rah Lady
    Whack for the Too Rah Loo Rah eh

    As I returned to Dublin City
    As the sun began to set
    Who should I spy but a Spanish lady
    Catching a moth, in a golden net

    First she saw me, then she fled me
    Lifted her petticoats o'er her knee
    In all me life I ne'er did see
    A maid so shy as the Spanish lady

    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Ray lady
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rye leh

    I've wandered north and Ive wondered south
    Through Stoney Barter and Patrick's close
    Up and around, by the Gloucester Diamond
    And back by Napper Tandys' house

    Auld age has laid her hands on me
    Cold as a fire of ashy coals
    But there is the love of me Spanish lady
    A maid so sweet about the soul

    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rah lady
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rah leh
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Ray lady
    Whack for the Too Rah, looh, Rah leh
