Thread Name: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
Subject: RE: Lyr Add: The Twang Man
leeneia,

This little ditty is a favourite song here in Ireland and is sung very often; especially in Dublin. Dubliners love songs that end with a pious moral.

So now ye've heard my story, I hope yis will all be good men,
And not go chasing the twangman's mot, or any other auld hen,
For they'll lave ye without a brass farthing, not even yer auld sack o' rags,
And ye'll wind up in the gutter, just like poor auld Mickey-de-bags.

Fergus
