Pogues – Waxie's Dargle lyrics

[the pogues' version]
------------------------------------

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"will ye go to the waxies dargle? "
Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan,
"i haven't got a farthing.
I went up to monto town
To see uncle mcardle
But he wouldn't give me a half a crown
For to go to the waxies dargle. "

What will ya have? !
I'll have a pint!
I'll have a pint with you, sir!
And if one of ya' doesn't order soon
We'll be chucked out of the boozer!

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"will ye go to the galway races? "
Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan,
"i'll hawk me aul' man's braces.
I went up to capel street
To the jewish moneylenders
But he wouldn't give me a couple of bob
For the aul' man's red suspenders. "

Chorus

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"we got no beef or mutton
If we went up to monto town
We might get a drink for nuttin'"
Here's a nice piece of advice
I got from an aul' fishmonger:
"when food is scarce and you see the hearse
You'll know you have died of hunger. "

Chorus x2

[waxie's dargle]
------------------------------------------

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"will ye come to the waxies dargle? "
Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan,
"sure I haven't got a farthing.
I've just been down to monto town
To see uncle mcardle
But he didn't have half a crown
For to go to the waxies dargle. "

What are ye having, will ye have a pint?
Yes, I'll have a pint with you, sir,
And if one of us doesn't order soon
We'll be thrown out of the boozer.

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"will ye come to the galway races? "
Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan,
"with the price of my aul' lad's braces.
I went down to capel street
To the jew man moneylenders
But they wouldn't give me a couple of bob on
My aul' lad's suspenders. "

Chorus

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan
"we have no beef or mutton
But if we go down to monto town
We might get a drink for nuttin'"
Here's a piece of good advice
I got from an aul' fishmonger:
"when food is scarce and you see the hearse
You'll know you have died of hunger.
