Nice to have some suggested lyrics, although I've enjoyed the mystery of this song for years after first hearing it on a Dubliners' recording. What could it all mean? Who was doing what with what to whom? Any someone surely came to a sorry end...

I also enjoyed how the phrase "the poor old gather-em-up" managed to get compressed into one final gasp.

Cheerily,
