"An Irishman Is Shy" is sung by Carmel Quinn on her album "What a Wonderful World" which can be ordered through her website or from Rego Irish Records. I was unable to find any sound samples or lyrics.

Here is the pertinent part of the original request, which I split to try to avoid consusion.

I'm seeking lyrics to two songs: Fisherman's Lassie and An Irishman is Shy.

An Irishman is Shy, the chorus goes:

Ah, me, fiddle dee diddle dee dee
When it comes to marrying an Irishman is shy

Anybody have these song lyrics and could share??

Thanks, Rose


Can we find the lyrics for "An Irishman Is Shy"?

AN IRISHMAN IS SHY is also on an album called "Sisters" by the Houghton Sisters.

Still no lyrics or sound samples, however.

AN IRISHMAN IS SHY
As sung by Carmel Quinn on "At Diamond Jim's" (2011)

1. Oh, the Irish are a fearless lot; it's known from town to town.
They'll always greet you with a smile and never with a frown.
They're brainy and they're brawny, but, alas! Oh, me! Oh, my!
When it comes to marryin', an Irishman is shy.
Ah, me! Fiddle-ee-dee-dee-dee!
When it comes to marryin', an Irishman is shy.

2. Well, he'll court you by the hour, bringin' flowers to your door,
And when it comes to dancin', he's the first one on the floor.
He'll wine you and he'll dine you with a twinkle in his eye,
But when....

3. Well, he's full o' charm an' blarney when the moon is shinin' bright.
The divil the man could kiss you more or hold you quite as tight.
He'll woo you and pursue you, say he'll love you till you die,
Ha! When....

4. Well, you'll need to help him out a bit to fin'lly do the deed:
A rollin' pin, a shotgun, and perhaps you'll even need
The army and the navy and a preacher standin' by,
For when it comes to marryin', an Irishman is shy.
Ah, me, and now he's sixty-three!
And when it comes to marryin', [SPOKEN:] he says he's not ready!
[SINGING:] An Irishman is shy!
