W:You see he'd a sort of the tipplin' way, W:With a love for the liquor poor Tim was born, W:To help him on with his work each day, W:He'd a "drop o' the cray-thur" ev'ry morn. W:Whack fol the da now, dance to your partner W:Welt the floor your trotters shake W:Wasn't it the truth I told you, W:Lots of fun at Finnegan's Wake. W:. W:One mornin' Tim was rather full, W:His head felt heavy which made him shake, W:He fell from a ladder, and he broke his skull, W:And they carried him home his corpse to wake. W:They rolled him up in a nice clean ship, W:And laid him out upon the bed, W:A gallon of whisky at his feet, W:And a barrel of porter at his heed. W:. W:His friends assembled at the Wake, W:And Mrs. Finnegan called for lunch, W:First they brought in tay, and cake, W:Then pipes, tobacco, and whisky punch. W:Biddy O'Brien began to cry, W:Such a nice clean corpse did you ever see? W:Tim Mavourneen why did you die? W:Arrah hold your gob said Paddy McGhee. W:. W:Then Maggie O'Connor took up the job, W:Oh Biddy says she, you're wrong I'm sure, W:Biddy gave her a belt in the gob, W:And left her sprawling on the floor W:Then the war did soon engage, W:'Twas woman to woman, and man to man, W:#Shelelaigh law was all the rage, W:And a row, and a ruction soon began. W:. W:Then Mickey Maloney raised his head, W:When a noggin of whisky flew at him, W:It missed and falling on the bed, W:The liquor scattered over Tim. W:Tim revives see how he rises, W:Timothy rising from the bed, Said, W:Whirl your whisky around like blazes, W:Thanum an dial do you think I'm dead?" % % % % %
