Smokey, to the best of my memory (which int too good)

" Oh Maybe someday I'll go back to Ireland
If my only wife should ever pass away
for I'll never forget the way she always nagged me
she has a mouth as big as Galway bay

In my dreams I see her in the Public houses
and the barman says your drunk you'll have to go
and she answers in a desperate sort of language
a language that the clergy didn't know

Then she'll put away ten pints of Arthur Guiness
and walk it home and wouldnt even sway
If the sea was beer instead of salty water
she would live a happy life in Galway Bay

On her back she had tattood a map of Ireland
and when she had her bath on Saturday
she would rub the Sunlight soap around by Claddagh
Just to watch the suds run into Galway Bay

Repeat verse one

That is from the singing of my Uncle Neddy when I was quite small In Limerick
