Ninety Years Old Song Lyrics And Guitar Chords By Foster And Allen. Chords by Paul McLaughlin. The tune of this song is pretty much the same as the old traditional Irish song ''The Nightingale''.

[D]Oh as I went out walking once [A] down by the [D]strand
I spied a young damsel she was dressed up so [A] grand
With [D] feathers and fineries and jewels of [A] gold
Well she [D] looked like a [G]damsel of nineteen years [D]old

Then I hugged her and I squeezed her ‘till she gave her consent
And off to be married the pair of us went
And after our marriage t’was home I did stroll
With the beautiful damsel of nineteen years old

And after our marriage I laid down to rest
To retire for the night with my fair maid so blest
An ass load of wadding from her waist she did fold
Ah she looked like a couple of nineteen years old

Now she took off her eyebrows so fair and so fine
She took out her false teeth and she looked 29
Then she took off her false wig her bald head so told
Ah she looked more like ninety then nineteen years old

She screwed off her left leg just down from her knee
She took off her fingers and she left only 3
Then she took out her glass eye and the carpet it rolled
Ah sweet Holy Moses she was ninety years old

Now all ye young fellows when a courting you go
Examine your damsel from her head to her toe
Get married in time or you’ll surely be sold
To the blooming old damsel of ninety years old.
