Rare auld times...Dublin sing songs!

:whistling
You have been warned.This is the place to find the words of your favourite pub songs.
Watch this space....

'ring a ring a rosy...as the light declines,
I remember DUBLIN CITY...in the rare auld times'.

More later.I even do requests.
:-)

'Come away, oh human child, to the waters and the wild.With a fairy hand in hand...for the world is more full of weeping than you will understand.........'

Molly Malone - you cannot go to Dublin and not sing Molly Malone!

It's a must for me!

I'll do it for you A!

**In Dublin's Fair City where the girls are so pretty
There once was a girl called sweet Molly Malone

She wheeled her wheelbarrow through street far & narrow
crying "Cockles and Mussels A-live A-live O"
A-live, A-live O, A-live, A-live O
crying "Cockles and Mussels A-live, A-live O

Now, she took a fever and no-one could save her
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone
So her ghost wheels her barrow
Through streets far and narrow

Crying "Cockles and Mussels A-live A-live O"
A-live, A-live O, A-live, A-live O
crying "Cockles and Mussels A-live, A-live O**



Is this song an Irish one - I only know part of it:

"I got time looking out my window
I got time looking out my door
I got time looking out my window
But honey, I ain't got time for you

Cos, you come home drunk and you
Stagger and swear
Take all my money but don't
Take me nowhere

Tired of being let down
Tired of being used
Get your feet back off my shoes"

Well done Aenonog (I still can't pronounce your name in my head I see you as a collection of vowels rather than think of your name).

In Dublin's fair city where the girls are so pretty..
I first set my eyes on sweet Molly Malone.
As she wheel'd her wheel barrow throuhg streets broad and narrow,
crying 'cockles and mussels alive alive o!

Chorus
Alive alive o! Alive alive o!
Crying cockles and mussels alive alive o!

She was a fishmonger and shur twas no wonder,
For so were her father and mother before
And they each wheel'd their barrow,through streets broad and narrow,
Crying 'cockles and mussels alive alive o!

Chorus

She died of a fever and no one could save her.
And that was the end of sweet Molly Malone :-(
Now her ghost wheels her barrow throuhg streets broad and narrow
Crying 'cockles and mussels alive alive o!'

Chorus

'Come away, oh human child, to the waters and the wild.With a fairy hand in hand...for the world is more full of weeping than you will understand.........'

Practice your yelps for this one.

I've played the wild rover for many's the year
and i've spent all me money on whiskey and beer
But now I'm returning with gold in great store
And I never will play the wild rover no more

Chorus..
And it's no,nay, never...(rise up your skirts!)
No nay never no more
Will I play the Wild Rover
No, never.no more.

I went to an alehouse I used to frequent
And I told the landlady my money was spent
I asked her for credit she answered me 'nay'
She said 'Patrons like you I can get any day'

Chorus

From out of my pocket I took moneys bright
And the landlady's eyes opened wide with delight
She said 'I have red stripes' and wines of the best'
And the words that I said, son, were only in jest'

Chorus

I'll go back to Jamaica and lie in the sun
But I will play the part of the prodigal son
And if my girl loves me, as oft' times before
Then I never will play the Wild Rover no more

Chorus....

'Come away, oh human child, to the waters and the wild.With a fairy hand in hand...for the world is more full of weeping than you will understand.........'
