|Johnny Jump Up|
II tell you a story that happened to me
One day as I went down to Youghal by the sea.
The sun it was bright and the day it was warm.
Says I, "A quiet pint wouldn't do me no harm."
I went in and I called for a bottle of stout.
Chorus:Oh never, oh never, oh never again,
If I live to be hundred or hundred and ten
For I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up
After drinking a quart of the Johnny Jump Up.
IIAfter leaving the third I went to the yard
Where I bumped into Brophy, the big civic guard.
"Come here to me boy, don't you know, I'm the law?"
I upped with my fist and I shattered his jaw.
He fell to the ground with his knees doubled up
"I'm afraid of me life I'll be hit by a car.
IIII went up the Lee Road a friend for to see,
And they call it the mad house in Cork by the Lee,
But when I got there, the truth I do tell,
They had the poor bugger locked up in a cell.
Said the guard, testing him "Say these words, if you can:
IVA man died in the Union by the name of McNabb.
They washed him and laid him outside on a slab,
And after O'Connor his measurements did take,
His wife took him home to a bloody fine wake.
About twelve o'clock and the beer it was high
Dieses Lied handelt von Cider, englischem Apfelwein,
der, besonders in manchen Ecken, einen hohen Alkoholgehalt hat.
