She was lovely and fair, and her first name was clare,
The daughter of big mickey morris.
But the gleam in her eye was the real reason why,
I fell madly in love with Clare Morris


If anyone knows the rest of this song I would appreciate it.

Cheers,
    IRISH

CLARE MORRIS

I was walking to town with the sun going down.
My feet feeling sore from the mileage.
I was covered in sweat and my clothes were all wet,
Having spent the whole day making silage,
When a lady drove up and she came to a stop
And says she “Are you going to Claremorris?”
Well, she shouted “Get in” with a cute little grin
And she told me that she was Clare Morris.

CHORUS: She was lovely and fair, and her first name was Clare,
The daughter of big Mickey Morris;
But the gleam in her eye was the real reason why
I fell madly in love with Clare Morris.

Now her beauty was rare and I thought then and there
How lucky I was to have met her,
But I felt ill at ease in my old dungarees
And my Wellingtons often smelt better.
Oh, but she was so neat from her head to her feet.
So delightful; she looked very dishy.
She was tastefully dressed and I sure was impressed
How she handled her new Mitsubishi. CHORUS

Now I'll never forget the next time that we met.
Big Tom and his band were in Midas.
I was having a jar with the boys at the bar.
She came over and stood right beside us.
I was wearing a suit and a good dash of Brut
And considered myself quite the charmer,
So I just couldn't wait so I asked her up straight:
“Would you like to come home with a farmer?”

Now says she with a laugh “Do you think I'm a calf,
Or what is the cause of your hurry?
Wouldn't I be a twit to be covered in grit
And smelling like that awful slurry?
If I gave you my hand I'd own half your land
And I suppose you'd expect me to plough it.
Now get on with your dance. You haven't a chance,
For my husband would never allow it.” CHORUS.

Claremorris is a town in County Mayo, Ireland.

There's lots of information on the 'net about the town, and about various people named Claire, or Clare Morris, but I can't find anything about the song.

Several sources on the web say that John Duggan recorded a song called I FELL IN LOVE WITH CLAREMORRIS. It's on an album called "Old Ignatius," 2001.
