Waxies Dargle

Lyrics

Says my old one to your old one
Will you come to the Waxies Dargle
Says your old one to my old one
I haven’t got a farthing
I went up to Monto Town
To see uncle Mc Ardle
But he wouldn’t give me half a crown
To go to the Waxies Dargle

Chorus
What will ye have, I’ll 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

Says my old one to your old one
Will you go to the Galway races
Says your old one to my old one
With the price of my old man’s braces
I went down to Capel Street
To the Jew man moneylenders
But they wouldn’d give me a couple of bob
On the old man’s red suspenders
Chorus

Says my old one to your old one
We have no beef or mutton
But if we go down to Monto Town
We might get a drink for nothing
Here’s a piece of advice I got
I heard from an old fishmonger
When food is scarce and ye see the hearse
You know you have died of hunger
Chorus
