Like all good folk songs this has several parodies, in particular this one. (First verse copied from the database - I can't do the blue clicky thing !!).

There is another version which is Willie's reply to the Furey Brothers and I think it involves Davy Arthur hiding behind a gravestone and talking back to Finbar !!

Have you heard the old song about Willie Mc Bride?
If I hear it again, it'll turn me insides!
For its sung in the Springtime and its sung in the Fall
- And mostly by people who can't sing at all!
You go out for a drink on a Saturday night
For a pint and a song, and things are alright
Until some drunken bowsey sits down by your side
And he asks for the one about "Willie Mc Bride"!
