Thread Name: Lyr Req: Miltown Cockroach (Con Ó Drisceoil)
Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Milltown Cockroach
Anybody wanting to catch Con at his best should look out for the compilation of his songs 'The Spoons Murder' (book and CD) which includes, Bob's Song, The Miltown Cockroach, The Spoons Murder, Ben Hur (wonderfullllll), The Irish Piper, King Lear, An Fear Báite, The Two-Row Cake, The Pool Song, The Miltown Fourteen, The Kerry Animals and A Hymn To Saint Finbarr.
Also the collection 'Sing Up' Irish Comic Songs and Satires for every occasion, edited by Fintan Vallely has 77 of the best humourous songs, mostly newly written with a few traditional ones thrown in for good luck.
I notice that Fintan's book is available from the amazing 'Book Depository' at a bargain price (and post free) and Con's is listed but not (yet - hopefully) available.
