Celebrates the paddles steamer Leinster Lass that plied between and Drogheda and Liverpool

One evening fair to take the air along the banks of Clyde
I tell you true I stood to view all nature in its pride
I tell you true I stood to view the big ships sailing past
When a steamboat brave heaved on the wave she'll called the Leinster Lass [Note 596.1]

On Newfound Green she had been seen cruising up and down [Note 596.2]
And on the docks of Liverpool her equal can't be found
On yon green bank a mermaid sat with her fine comb and glass
Saying you're welcome back to Erin's Isle my lovely Leinster Lass

Being on the seventeenth of March all on St. Patrick's Day
I heard a band going up the Strand behold now they did play
The colours flew red white and blue the birds sang round the mast [Note 596.3]
Saying you're welcome back to Erin's Isle my lovely Leinster Lass

Here's a health to our commander great honour to his name
And likewise to our sea-captain his name was Willie Kane
Let every man on her deck stand toss up one flowing glass
That can rig and steer when danger's near aboard the Leinster Lass
