Useta Love Her (Irish Descendants)

I have fallen for another,
she can make her own way home,
And even when she asks me now,
I let her go alone;
I useta watch her up the chapel
when she went to Sunday Mass,
When she'd go up to receive,
I'd kneel down there and watch her pass -
She'd a lot of class.

I useta love her,
useta love her once, a long time ago,
I useta love her, useta love her once,
a long, long time ago;
Gone, all my lovin' is gone,
It's gone, all my lovin' is gone.

I remember her collecting for
Concern On Christmas Eve,
She was on a forty-eight hour fast,
just water and black tea;
I walked right up and made
an ostentatious contribution,
And I winked at her to tell her
I'd seduce her in the future -
When she was feeling looser.

I useta love her,
useta love her once, a long time ago,
I useta love her, useta love her once,
a long, long time ago;
Gone, all my lovin' is gone,
It's gone, all my lovin' is gone.

So now you know the truth of it,
she's no longer my obsession,
All thoughts and dreams I've had of her
would take six months in confession;
See I met this young one Sunday night,
and she's into free expression,
Her ambition is to rid the world
of its sinful repression -
Then we had a session.

I useta love her,
useta love her once, a long time ago,
I useta love her, useta love her once,
a long, long time ago;
Gone, all my lovin' is gone,
It's gone, all my lovin' is gone.
It's gone, all my lovin' is gone.

I have fallen for another,
she can make her own way home.
