Gaelic Storm - Songtexte


What's The Rumpus - Album




D'arcy's Donkey


 
'Twas up the Bluestack Mountains

D'arcy kept a bit of a still

We were sneaking home a bottle

When the guards came up the hill

"Lose the booze," cried D'arcy

And before we could reply

He'd poured it in the nosebag

Of his donkey standing by



The donkey had a ganky leg

And only one good eye

When he got a lick of the whiskey

Well, you'd swear that he could fly

He rocketed through the roundabout

And down by Jamesie's Bar

Then he vaulted through the hedges

At the track at Ballintra



Here's to you, to me and one and all

To the Garda, and the gargle

And the trophy on the wall

Here's to you, to me and one and all

The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey

Won the race at Donegal



The Gardai chased the donkey

And we followed in pursuit

For fear they'd spill the whiskey

We begged them not to shoot

We barreled through the turnstiles

We got there just in time

To place our bets before the lot of 'em

Reached the starting line



The flag was up the race was on

The donkey looked behind

He saw the guards were after him

But sure he didn't mind

He had himself another sip

And a second one as wel,

Then bucked and kicked

And knocked the competition all to hell



Here's to you, to me and one and all

To the Garda, and the gargle

And the trophy on the wall

Here's to you, to me and one and all

The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey

Won the race at Donegal



The donkey past the post

About a lap or two ahead

He finished off the whiskey

And then toppled over dead

We went to check the bets

And found when everything was done

The Garda came in second and paid thirty-five to one



So we dragged the donkey's carcass

Down to Jamesie's for a pint

To drink up all our winnings

And to celebrate the night

We missed the poor old donkey

But still, we had to laugh

When Jamesie made a trophy

Of the donkey's better half



So raise a beer in the air

To that famous derriere

Everybody raise a glass to D'arcy's ass

D'arcy's ass



Here's to you, to me and one and all

To the Garda, and the gargle

And the trophy on the wall

Here's to you, to me and one and all

The day that D'arcy's drunken donkey

Won the race at Donegal
