A hungry feeling came o' er me stealing
And the mice were sqealing in my prison cell
And the auld triangle went jingle jangle along the
Banks of the Royal Canal

To start the morning the s***w was bawling get up ye
Bowsie and clean up your cell

And the auld triangle went jingle jangle along the
Banks of the Royal Canal

The s***w was peeping Skinner Mac was sleeping and he
Was dreaming of his girl Sal

And the auld triangle went jingle jangle along the
Banks of the Royal Canal

The moon was shining the sun declining Skinner Mac was
Pining in his prison cell
And the auld triangle went jingle jangle along the
Banks of the Royal Canal.

In the female prison there lie seventy women and itґs
In there with them that Iґd like to dwell

And the auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
And the auld triangle went jingle-jangle
All along the banks of the Royal Canal
