Two more of my All Time Favorite Irish songs – trying to get you ready for the sing-a-long : )

Whiskey In The Jar by the Dubliners
As I was a goin’ over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Saying “Stand and deliver” for he were a bold deceiver

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure ‘t was no wonder
But Jenny blew me charges and she filled them up with water
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

And ‘t was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
I couldn’t shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

There’s some take delight in the carriages a rolling
and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
but I take delight in the juice of the barley
and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

And if anyone can aid me ‘t is my brother in the army
If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
And if he’ll go with me, we’ll go rovin’ through Killkenney
And I’m sure he’ll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny

Mush-a ring dumb-a do dumb-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There’s whiskey in the jar

Chandler’s Wife by Once (Original Broadway Cast Recording)
I went into the chandler’s shop some candles for to buy,
I looked around the chandler’s shop but no one did I spy.
I was disappointed and some angry words I said,
Then I heard the sound of a (knock,knock,knock) up above my head. (2x)

Well I was slick and I was quick, and up the stairs I sped,
And much to my surprise I found the chandler’s wife in bed;
And with her was another man of most gigantic size,
And they were having a (knock,knock,knock)  right before my eyes. (2x)

When the fun was over and done and the lady raised her head,
She was quite surprised to find me standing by the bed.
“If you will be discreet, my lad, if you would be so kind,
I’ll let you come up for some (knock,knock,knock) whenever you feel inclined.” (2x)

So, many a day and many a night when the chandler wasn’t home,
To get myself some candles to the chandler’s shop I’d roam.
But nary a one she gave to me, but gave to me instead,
A little bit more of the (knock,knock,knock) to light my way to bed. (2x)

So, all you married men take heed, if ever you come to town,
If you must leave your woman alone, be sure to tie her down.
Or, if you would be kind to her, just sit her on the floor,
Mind give her so much of that (knock,knock,knock) she doesn’t need any more. (2x)
