A telephone call home did the trick!

BIDDY McGRATH

I'll tell you a story, that'll give you a shock
It's all about a murder at the Ringsend dock
The girl in question was Biddy McGrath
She strangled two sailors with the straps of her bra

Chorus
With me too-rye-a, etc.

They tried to get her to drop her knickers
But clever as they were still they couldn't trick her
She remembered the story told by her ma
And she quietly untied the straps of her bra

Chorus

She tied one around the big fellow's head
And she flung him in the Liffey like a crust of bread
The little fella laughed, and he went ha ha
So she stuffed his mouth with the rest of her bra

Chorus

Biddy went home at a quarter to one
She was happy and contented at the job she'd done
She told the story to her ma and her da
Saying "Thanks be to Jaysus that I wore me bra"

Chorus

So all you girls that like sailors at night
Make sure that the straps of your bra are tight
Remember the story of Biddy McGrath
Keep a hand on your knickers and the other on your bra

Chorus
