Amo, amas, I love a lass
As a cedar tall and slender,
Sweet cowslips grace her nom'native case.
And she's of the feminine gender.
Borum, corum sunt divorum
Harum, scarum divo
Tag, rag, merry derry, periwig and hat-band,
Hic hoc horum genitive.

Can I decline,
A nymph divine,
Her voice as a flute is dulcis,
Her occulus bright,
Her manus white.
And oft when I tacto her pulsis
Chorus, Borum, corum etc.

O how Bella,
My puella!
I'll kiss in secula seculorum,
If I've luck sir,
She's my uxor.
O Dies benedictorum,
Chorus, Borum, corum etc.

By John O'Keefe (1747 - 1833), Irish dramatist
