Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
We'll never want to leave ya
Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
'Til we come back to see ya

As we were walkin' down to Wales one day
We chanced upon young Tommy Clancy
And we called to him, "Could you go a drink?"
Said "He'll ask that's my fancy"

Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
We'll never want to leave ya
Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
'Til we come back to see ya

Oh, we drank to Tommy and he did the same
We drank to all his hellish brothers
And we drank to home and the girls we've known
Then had one for our mothers

Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
We'll never want to leave ya
Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
'Til we come back to see ya

And then we sang those songs that we sang before
We sang that we would drink forever
When the last drop passed our lips that day
We sang this song together

Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
We'll never want to leave ya
Oh, we'll stay awhile to bide awhile
'Til we come back to see ya
