Dicey Riley

Performed by Marc Gunn
From: Not Every Day Is St. Patrick's Day

lyrics and music traditional

Poor old Dicey Riley she has taken to the sup.
Poor old Dicey Riley she will never give it up.
For it’s off each morning to the hock
Where she goes in for another little drop
Ah the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley

She walks along Fitzgibbon Street with an independent air
And then it’s down by Summerhill, where the people stare
She says “It’s nearly half past one
It’s time I had another little one.’
Ah the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley.

She owns a little sweet shop at the corner of the street
And every evening after school I go to wash her feet
She leaves me there to mind the shop while she nips in for another little drop
Ah the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley
