There dwells in Cornwall a handsome maid,
Whose name is Laura-Ann;
For her I'll change my rovin' ways,
At least see if I can.
For her father said, as he shook his head,
"No, son, you'll not do;
Give up the guitar, forget the bar
And I'll give my lass to you."

Well, a frosty beer straight from the tap,
Looks well to a thirsty man,
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.

Her hair is dark as a pint of Guinness,
And it's smooth as Caffrey's Cream;
To see her is to love her,
To find her in your dreams.
There can't be found in Cornwall town,
Any finer maid I've seen;
So like a baby from its bottle,
From the liquor I must ween.

Well, a frosty beer straight from the tap,
Looks well to a thirsty man,
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.

Waiting for the flowers of April,
Can seem an eternity;
But at Laura's door I'd wait even more,
And much more patiently.
But all this waiting builds a thirst,
And a throat dry as can be;
So, I'll head on down to Paddy's Pub -
To hell with sobriety!

Well, a frosty beer straight from the tap,
Looks well to a thirsty man,
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.
But not half as pretty does it seem,
As me Darlin' Laura-Ann.
