That's right my name is Danny Boy and I like to drink at night.
I go down to the pub, wherein I buy myself a pind or three.
I like to go out drinking, 'cause beer it is my life,
Until I come home and lay eyes upon my darling wife.
And they say
Oh Danny, won't you go home earlier tonight?
Your daugher doesn't know you
And your giving us a fright when you say...
Say, something's wrong with anyone who's not lik eme.
With you the violence just comes so easily.
You never learn I have to teach you constantly.
Hush now.
That's right my name is Danny Boy and I'll buy another round.
Then off to the marked when this place closes down.
I say drinking's always done when the sun's up in the sky.
The sun is always up somwhere,
And it's your turn to buy and they say,
Oh, Danny, won't you go home earlier tonight?
Your son he doesn't know you and your giving us a fright when you say
Say, somthing's wrong with anyone who's not like me.
With you the violence just comes so easily.
You never learn I have to teach you constantly.
Hush now.
Hush now.
Sleep.
Sleep floating child.
..This is affectionate.
