lyrics

Chorus:
Some say the Divil is dead, the Divil is dead, the Divil is dead
Some say the Divil is dead and buried in Killarney.
More say he rose again, more say he rose again,
More say he rose again and joined the British Army.

Feed the pigs and milk the cow, and milk the cow, and milk the cow
Feed the pigs and milk the cow and early in the morning.
Cock your leg, o Paddy dear, Cock your leg, o Paddy dear,
Cock your leg, o Paddy dear, it's time to stop your yawning.

(Chorus)

Katie she is tall and thin, she's tall and thin, she's tall and thin,
Katie she is tall and thin and likes her drops of brandy.
Drinks it in the bed at night, drinks it in the bed at night,
Drinks it in the bed at night. It makes her nice and randy.

(Chorus)

My man is six-foot tall, he's six-foot tall, he's six foot-tall,
My man is six-foot tall and likes his sugar candy.
Goes to bed at six o'clock, goes to bed at six o'clock
He goes to bed at six o'clock. He's lazy fat and bandy.

(Chorus)

The wife she has a hairy thing, a hairy thing, a hairy thing.
The wife she has a hairy thing. She showed it to me on Sunday.
Bought it in a furrier shop, bought it in a furrier shop
Bought it in a furrier shop, it's going back on Monday.

(Chorus)
