There Are Suitors At My Door

There are suitors at my door
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
Six or eight or even more
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And my father wants me wed
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
Or at least that’s what he said
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o

Chorus
Oh lay oh la, oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o (x 4)

So I told him that I will
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
When the rivers run uphill
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And the fish begin to fly
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And the day before I die
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o

CHORUS

So my father said to me
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
You will marry and you’ll see
something something something. <g>

CHORUS

Well, I asked him if he’d leave
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
But he said he’d rather stay
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
So I let him have his way
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And tomorrow’s my wedding day
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o

CHORUS

So the rivers ran uphill
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And the fish began to fly
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
And the day before I died
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o
I became a blushing bride.
oh-a-lay-oh-mahkee-o

CHORUS
