Dicey Reilly

Lyrics

Chorus
Poor old Dicey Reilly, she has taken to the sup
Poor old Dicey Reilly, she will never give it up
For it’s off each morning to the hock
And she nips in for another little drop
Ah, the heart to the rule is Dicey Reilly

She walks along Fitzgibbon Street with an independent air
And then it’s down to Summerhill, at her the people stare
She says it’s nearly half past one
So she’ll nip in for another little one
Ah, the heart to the rule is Dicey Reilly
Chorus

She owns a little sweetshop at the corner of the street
And every evenin’ after school, I go to wash her feet
She leaves me there to mind the shop
While she nips in for another little drop
Ah, the heart to the rule is Dicey Reilly
Chorus
