I certainly knew this song in my childhood but finally transcribed it from a recording by The Clancy Brothers way back in the early eighties. It is a lovely jig having some delightful Irish alliteration ("... fair and fat and forty ...") and plenty of tongue-twisting. It's a very humorous comment on the married state describing the loss of respect incurred when entering matrimony.
