Waxies Dargle

Melody -

1. Says my aul one to your aul one
Will yeh come to the waxies dargle
Says my aul one to your aul one
Sure I haven't got a farthing
I've just been down to Monto Town
To see young Kill McArdle
But he wouldn't lend me half a crown to go
To the waxies dargle.


What are you have'in will you have a pint
I'll have a pint with you sir
And if one of you doesn't order soon
We'll be thrown out of the Boozer.

  2. Says my aul one to your aul one
Will you come to the Galaway Races
Says your aul one to my aul one
With the price of my aul lad's braces
I went down to Chapel Street
To the 'ol money lender
But he wouldn't give me
A couple of bob on
My aul lad's red suspenders.

3. Says my aul one to your aul one
We have no beef or mutton
But if we go down to Monto Town
We might get a drink for nuttin
Here's a piece of advise
I got from an old fish monger
When the food is scarce
And you see the hearse
You'll know you died of hunger.
