Words & Music - Nicky Sickboy

lyrics

When missus O’Riley from county Wicklow
To keep her groom away from hitting the bottle
Took his barrels of grog in the river to throw
So the grog n Mister O’Riley had to go with the flow

As the barrels hit the shore of the Dublin Bay
Not for very long in the water they stayed
The dried out dockers wouldn’t let ‘em cast away
But drunk’em ‘til they all passed out for the rest of the day

What falls into the stream of the river Liffey
Will end up in the harbour of Dublin City

As soon as came the day when Mister O’Riley
Was in the early morn just going cold turkey
Exceeded by the mishap he carried his lady
From the bridge into the river he dumped missus O’Riley

As the colleen hit the shore of the Dublin Bay
Not for very long in the water she stayed
The single dockers wouldn’t let her cast away
But made her advances n she never said nay
