FreddyHeadey Lyr Req: An Lacha Bacach (8) RE: Lyr Req: An Lacha Bacach 28 Dec 18


My poor wounded craytur, youíre breaking my heart
Lying sore by the door you look terribly bad
How lovely your wing now all flowing with muck,
Your wee paw now so raw, in two halves it is cut.

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam†(x2)
How lovely your wing now all flowing with muck,
Your wee paw now so raw, in two halves it is cut.

That donkey Iím sure he gave you a fair whack
So may an iron brand all day burn hard on his back
Iíll tie him up for nine days in the field out the back
And my trusty shelalegh will dance on his crack

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam†(x2)
Iíll tie him up for nine days in the field out the back
And my trusty shelalegh will dance on his crack

Come here now my pride
To see how you were hewn
And donít be so noisy with your whinging tune
With breaking and bawling, your burden is huge
Shur Ďtis torture the dance of the duck with the wound

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam†(x2)
With breaking and bawling, your burden is huge
Shur Ďtis torture the dance of the duck with the wound

Whatíll happen tomorrow, consider my case
With no nice blue egg
To greet my morning face
For the loss of your eggs in poor health I am struck
But Iíve patience and faith in my little lame duck

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam†(x2)
For the loss of your eggs in poor health I am struck
But Iíve patience and faith in my little lame duck

Iíll build you a pond to swim away out
Shur it is the best cure for the lame duck no doubt
Go on with your shivering scared little wings
By the start of next March you will fly high and sing.

Didery aighle dam dodle di am the dam dam†(x2)
Go on with your shivering scared little wings
By the start of next March you will fly high and sing.

Extra verse:

Come with me right way oíer the old home threshold
Stay there and Iíll wrap you in bandage and board
To give plaster cast growth
To your fractured wee bones
And nine days to just doze in your own happy home
