Hi all,

I'm currently looking for info on a song I heard a few years ago at a session in Dublin which had the chorus 'Everyone is doing it but you my lad', or something very close to that. It seemed to have a touch of the music hall to it. Any leads?

All the best,

Ian

I think this may be it. Found with a Google of

Everyone is doing it but you my lad, irish song

EVERYONE DOES IT BUT YOU

When I was a lad the master once said
My lessons I never had right
He laid on his cane which gave me much pain
For he laid it on with all of his might
He gave me a sum I never had done
When I murmured that’s too hard to do could do
You silly big ass you’re the worst in the class
For everyone’s done it but you

Chorus
Everyone’s done it but you my dear lad
Everyone’s done it but you
And you are to blame if you don’t do the same
For everyone’s done it but you

Last Christmas night for enjoyment I went
To a friend’s Christmas party or ball
The ladies all there were so handsome and fair
That I got enchanted by all
They all wore big bows beneath their little toes
Enjoying a sweet kiss or two
When a sweet lass named Grace
Looked straight into my face
And said everyone’s done it but you

Chorus

When the dance it was over straight home to the door
I accompanied this fair little maid
And I made it all right for to meet her next night
Well she wasn’t too hard to persuade
Her promise she kept and was glad to accept
That I was her lover so true
And she said my dear lad I’ll explain to my dad
That everyone’s done it but you

Chorus

Now ten years have fled since first we got wed
And there’s not a sign of an heir
And my sister Kate has a family of eight
And my other sister Janie’s got two
And the neighbours all say that there’s something astray
Because everyone’s done it but you

Chorus
