WAXIES DARGLE
(Irish traditional)

Says my aul wan to your aul wan
Will ye go to the waxies dargle?
Says your aul wan to my aul wan,
I havent got a farthing.
I went up to monto town
To see uncle mcardle
But he wouldnt give me a half a crown
For to go to the waxies dargle.

CHORUS:
What will ya have?
Ill have a pint!
Ill have a pint with you, sir!
And if one of ya doesnt order soon
Well be chucked out of the boozer!

Says my aul wan to your aul wan
Will ye go to monto town?
Says your aul wan to my aul wan,
Ill hawk me aul mans braces.
I went up to capel street
To the jewish moneylenders
But he wouldnt give me a couple of bob
For the aul mans red suspenders.

CHORUS

Says my aul wan to your aul wan
We got no beef or mutton
If we go up to galway town
We'll get a drink for nuttin
Heres a nice piece of advice
I got from an aul fishmonger
When food is scarce and you see the hearse
You'll know you have died of hunger.

CHORUS x2
