DO WHAT YOU PLEASE BUT TAKE CARE OF MY CAP. AKA and see "Don't Spoil My Cap," "Planxty O'Daly. Irish, Air or Planxty (6/8 time). G Minor. Standard tuning (fiddle). AB. An untitled air that collector George Petrie believed was a planxty or dance tune "apparently by Carolan." He indicated it was a variant of a tune he had collected, called "Do what you please but take care of my cap", from the sculptor Patrick MacDowell in 1859. Francis O'Neill printed the tune in his Music of Ireland (1903, No. 688) as "Planxty O'Daly," a title that Donal O'Sullivan concludes is wrong.
