Two versions of the same song!

I couldn't stand it longer: so, a hoult of him I took,
And I gave him such a welting as he'd get at Donnybrook.
He hollered: Millia murther! and to get away did try,
And swore he'd never write again: 'No Irish need apply'
He made a big apology; I bid him thin good-bye,
Saying: Whin next you want a bating, add: No Irish need apply!

The "Millia murther" has to do with the attack on him!

The MALE version is aggressive, while the FEMALE is gentle.
