The Irish Rover 歌詞

The Irish Rover - The Pogues

On the fourth of july eighteen hundred and six

We set sail from the sweet cove of cork

 

We were sailing away with a cargo of bricks

For the grand city hall in new york

 

Towas a wonderful craft she was rigged fore-and-aft

And oh how the wild winds drove her

She'd got several blasts she'd twenty-seven masts

And we called her the irish rover

 

We had one million bales of the best sligo rags

We had two million barrels of stones

We had three million sides of old blind horses hides

We had four million barrels of bones

We had five million hogs six million dogs

Seven million barrels of porter

We had eight million bails of old nanny goats' tails

In the hold of the irish rover

 

There was awl mickey coote who played hard on his flute

When the ladies lined up for his set

 

He was tooting with skill for each sparkling quadrille

Though the dancers were fluther'd and bet

 

With his sparse witty talk he was cock of the walk

As he rolled the dames under and over

They all knew at a glance when he took up his stance

And he sailed in the irish rover

 

There was barney mcgee from the banks of the lee

There was hogan from county tyrone

There was jimmy mcgurk who was scarred stiff of work

And a man from westmeath called me alone

 

There was slugger o'toole who was drunk as a rule

And fighting bill tracey from dover

And your man mick mccann from the banks of the bann

Was the skipper of the irish rover

 

We had sailed seven years when the measles broke out

And the ship lost it's way in a fog

And that whale of the crew was reduced down to two

Just meself and the captain's old dog

Then the ship struck a rock oh lord what a shock

The bulkhead was turned right over

 

Turned nine times around and the poor dog was drowned

 

I'm the last of the irish rover
