The Pikeys

Waxies’ Dargle

Says my aul’ wan to your aul’ wan –

“Will ye go to the Waxies dargle?”
Says your aul’ wan to my aul’ wan –

“No, I haven’t got a farthing.”

Well I’m for Father Paddy’s Pub, to see aul’ Sinjin Fraser
But he wouldn’t loan me a half a crown, or buy me a whisky chaser.

What will you have?  

I’ll have a pint, so fill up all our glasses.

And if one of us doesn’t order soon, we’ll be tossed out on our asses.


Says my aul’ wan to your aul’ wan –

“Will ye go out on a bender?”
Says your aul’ wan to my aul’ wan –

“I’ll hock me aul’ man’s Fender.”


I went up to the Fox & Goose, to meet with aul’ James Wilson
But he wouldn’t give me a couple of bob,for me granda’s beat-up Gibson

 Says my aul’ wan to your aul’ wan –

“We got no beef or mutton.
If we went up t’ Old Ironsides,

we might get a drink for nuthin”


Here’s a piece of good advice,tha’ I got from aul’ Bob Waller:

“Well, ya drink too much, and yer gonna be sick. And I don’t wanna hear you holler!”
