A MAN WHO EATS MEAT EVERY DAY
(Traditional. Rewrites by Dónal Thompson)

My name is Jock Stewart
I'm a canny young man
And a handsome young rover I've been.
But give me some veal
When you're dining with me
I'm a man who eats meat every day.

I'm a piper by trade
I'm a dashing young blade
And it's many the tunes I can play.
But before a tin whistle
I'd chew on some gristle
I'm a man who eats meat everyday.

I have acres of land
I have men to command
And I've always a shilling to pay
For a pint of good Guinness
And some pork chops to finish
I'm a man who eats meat everyday.

I took up my dog
And him I did shoot
All down in the County Kildare
For there's nothing better
Than a stir fried Red Setter
I'm a man who eats meat every day.

Come fill up your stomachs
With brisket and brains
With liver and sausage and steak
Rump, bacon and ham
Roast cutlets of lamb
I'm a man who eats meat every day.

Come get your gnashers
Round tasty fried rashers
Washed down with an auld cup of tay.
Be easy and free
When you breakfast with me
I'm a man who eats meat every day.
DT
