The Keeper of the Eddystone light
---------------------------------
Oh, me father was the Keeper of the Eddystone light
slept with a mermaid one fine night
Out of this union there came three
A porpoise and a porgy and the other was me!

Yo ho ho, the wind blows free,
Oh for the life on the rolling sea!

One fine night I was trimming the glim
singing a verse from the evening hymn
I head a voice cry out an "Ahoy!"
and there was me mother sitting on a buoy.

Yo ho ho, the wind blows free,
Oh for the life on the rolling sea!

"What's become of my children three?"
me mother ask of me.
one's being exhibited as a talking fish
the other was served on a chafing dish.

Yo ho ho, the wind blows free,
Oh for the life on the rolling sea!

She flashed her seaweed hair.
I looked again, and she wasn't there
Then a voice come from out of the night
"To Hell with the keeper of the Eddystone Light!"

Yo ho ho, the wind blows free,
Oh for the life on the rolling sea!

O'Leary's Bar
-------------
Twas a cold winter's evenin
the guests were all leavin
O'Leary was closin the bar
when he turned and he said
to the lady in red
Get up you can't sleep where you are.

She shed a sad tear
in her bucket of beer
as she dreamt of the cold night ahead
Then a gentleman dapper
stepped out of the
phone booth
And these are the words that he said:

"Oh, her mother never told her
the things a young girl should know
about the ways of a college crowd
and how they come and go.
MOSTLY GO

The years have taken her beauty
and sin has left its sad scar
So think of your mothers and sisters, boys
and let her sleep under the bar."
