Citadel Hill
NOTE: I've heard John White sing a version of this substituting Signal Hill for Citadel Hill

One day in December I'll never forget
A charming young creature I happily met
Her eyes shone like diamonds, she was dressed up to kill
She was tripping and slipping down Citadel Hill.

I says, "My fair creature, you will me excuse!"
I offered my arm and she did not refuse.
Her arm locked in mine made me feel love's sweet thrill
As we walked off together down Citadel Hill.

The very next day to the church we did go.
The people all whispered, as well you must know.
Said the priest, "Will you wed?" Says I, "That we will!"
So we kissed and were hitched upon Citadel Hill.

So now we are married and of children have three,
But me and the Missus can never agree.
The first she called Bridget, the second one Bill.
Says I, "The runt's name shall be Citadel Hill."

Come all you young fellows, take warning by me,
If ever in need of a wife you may be,
I'll tell you the place where you'll get your fill
Go tripping and slipping down Citadel Hill.
