I'm looking for a parody on Willie McBride. I was given this, about a year ago in a pub, then lost the words before i learnt it. I have searched the DT & forum archives, but the version I'm seeking is not there.

The version i seek, basically tells of the pub musician, having to put up with all kinds of idiots attempting to sing the song, from memory, it starts something like this...

Now you all know the song about Willie McBride
I've heard it so much, I've damn nearly cried
For it's sung every night, by the big and the small
But mostly by people who can't sing at all,

And then goes on to tell of a paricular person arriving up to sing it,

"He drapes his arm round your shoulder,
Now He's your best friend,
And you slowly rea-lise
He knows it to the end...."

Does this stir any memories people? any help would be greatly appreciated. Just note, the above words are only from memory, and may not be 100%accurate
