Lyrics

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan "Will ye go to the Waxies Dargle?" Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan "I haven't got a farthing
I went up to Monto town To see uncle Mcardle But he wouldn't give me a half a crown For to go to the Waxies Dargle"

What will ya have? I'll have a pint I'll have a pint with you, sir And if one of ya' doesn't order soon We'll be chucked out of the boozer

Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan "Will ye go to the Galway races?" Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan "I'll hawk me aul' man's braces

I went up to Capel Street To the Jewish moneylenders But he wouldn't give me a couple of bob For the aul' man's red suspenders"

What will ya have? I'll have a pint I'll have a pint with you, sir And if one of ya' doesn't order soon We'll be chucked out of the boozer
Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan "We got no beef or mutton If we went up to Monto town We might get a drink for nuttin'"

Here's a nice piece of advice I got from an aul' fishmonger When food is scarce and you see the hearse You'll know you have died of hunger
What will ya have? I'll have a pint I'll have a pint with you, sir And if one of ya' doesn't order soon We'll be chucked out of the boozer

What will ya have? I'll have a pint I'll have a pint with you, sir And if one of ya' doesn't order soon We'll be chucked out of the boozer
I like to walk in the summer breeze
Down dalling road by the dead old trees
And drink with my friends
In the hammersmith broadway
Dear dirty delightful old drunken old days


Then the winter came down and I loved it so dearly
The pubs and the bookies where you'd spend all your time
And the old men that were singing
When the roses bloom again
And turn like the leaves
To a new summertime


Now the winter comes down
I can't stand the chill
That comes to the streets around christmas time
And I'm buggered to damnation
And I haven't got a penny
To wander the dark streets of london

Every time that I look on the first day of summer
Takes me back to the place where they gave ect
And the drugged up psychos
With death in their eyes
And how all of this really
Means nothing to me


Now the winter comes down
I can't stand the chill
That comes to the streets around christmas time
And I'm buggered to damnation
And I haven't got a penny
To wander the dark streets of london


Every time that I look on the first day of summer
Takes me back to the place where they gave ect
And the drugged up psychos
With death in their eyes
And how all of this really
Means nothing to me


Now the winter comes down
I can't stand the chill
That comes to the streets around christmas time
And I'm buggered to damnation
And I haven't got a penny
To wander the dark streets of london
To wander the dark streets of london
To wander the dark streets of london
