Johnny Jump Up/Morrison's Jig - Gaelic Storm

I'll tell you a story that happened to me

 

One day as I went down to Youghal by the Sea

 

The sun it was bright and the day it was warm

Says I A quiet pint wouldn't do me no harm

 

I went to the barman I says Give me a stout

Says the barman I'm sorry all the beer tis sold out

Try whiskey or vodka ten years in the wood

 

Says I I'll try cider I heard that it's good

 

Oh never oh never oh never again

If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten

I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up

 

After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up

 

After lowering the third

I headed straight for the yard

Where I bumped into Brophy the big civic guard

Come here to me boy don't

you know we're in the law

 

Well I upped with my fist and I shot to his jaw

 

Fell to the ground with his knees crumpled up

T'wasnt I hit him t'was the johnny jump

 

And the next thing I met

down in Youghal by the Sea

Was a cripple on crutches and says he to me

 

I'm afraid o' me life I'll be hit by a car

 

Would you help me across to the Railwayman's Bar

And after three pints of that cider so sweet

He threw down his crutches

and he danced on his feet

 

Oh never oh never oh never again

 

If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten

 

I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up

 

After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up

 

Now I went up the Lee Road a friend for to see

 

They call it the Madhouse in Cork by the Lee

 

But when I got up there the truth I do to tell

They had the poor bugger locked up in his cell

Says the guard testing him

Say these words if you can

 

Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran'

Tell them I'm not crazy tell them I'm not mad

 

T'was only six pints of that cider I had

 

Now a man died in the Union by the name of McNabb

 

They washed him and laid him outside on a slab

And after the coroner his measurements did take

 

His wife took him home to a bloody fine wake

Twas about twelve o'clock and the beer it was high

 

The corpse he sat up and he says with a sigh

 

I can't get to heaven they won't let me up

 

Til I bring them a pint of the Johnny Jump Up

 

Oh never oh never oh never again

 

If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten

 

Cause I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up

 

After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up

 

Oh never oh never oh never again

 

If I live to a hundred or a hundred and

 

ten'Cause I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up

 

After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up
