Weile Waile

Lyrics

There was an old woman and she lived in the woods, weile weile waile
There was an old woman and she lived in the woods, down by the river Saile

She had a baby three months old, weile weile waile
She had a baby three months old, down by the river Saile

She had a pen knife long and sharp, weile weile waile
She had a pen knife long and sharp, down by the river Saile

She stuck the pen knife in the babys heart, weile weile waile
She stuck the pen knife in the babys heart, down by the river Saile

There were three loud knocks come a’knockin on the door, weile weile waile
There were three loud knocks come a’knockin on the door, down by the river Saile

There were two policemen and a special-branchman, weile weile waile
There were two policemen and a special-branchman, down by the river Saile

They put a rope around her neck, weile weile waile
They put a rope around her neck, down by the river Saile

They pulled the rope and she got hang, weile weile waile
They pulled the rope and she got hang, down by the river Saile

And that was the end of the woman in the woods, weile weile waile
And that was the end of the baby too, down by the river Saile

Dublin In the Rare Old Times

Lyrics

Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

Raised on songs & stories, heroes of re-known
The passing tales & glories that once was Dublin town
The hallowed halls & houses, the haunting childrens’ rhymes
That once was Dublin city in the rare ould times

Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

My name it is Sean Demspey, as Dublin as can be
Born hard & late in Pimlico, in a house that ceased to be
By trade I was a cooper, lost out to redundancy
Like my house that fell to progress, my trade’s a memory

& I courted Peggy Dignan, as pretty as you please
A rogue & a child of Mary, from the rebel liberties
I lost her to a student chap with a skin as black as coal
When he took her off to Birmingham, she took away my soul

Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

The years have made me bitter, the gargle dims my brain
‘Cause Dublin keeps on changing & nothing stays the same
The Pillar & the Met have gone, the Royal long since pulled down
As the great unyielding concrete makes a city of my town

Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times

Fare thee well sweet Anna Liffey, I can no longer stay
& watch the new glass cages, that spring up along the quay
My mind’s too full of memories, too old to hear new chimes
I’m part of what was Dublin in the rare ould times

Ring a ring a rosie, as the light declines
I remember Dublin city in the rare ould times
