I am looking for the lyrics to a Clancy Brothers tune called Mick McGuire. Was wondering if anyone could direct me to a resource that would have it.

Two versions. The first is the Clancy's.

Oh, me name is Mick Maguire and I'll quickly tell to you
Of a young girl I admired, called Katy Donohue
She was fair and fat and forty and believe me when I say
That whenever I came in at the door you could hear her mammy say
Johnny get up from the fire, get up and give the man a seat
Can't you see it's Mr. Maguire and he's courtin' your sister Kate
Ah, you know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out of the town
Arragh get up out of that, you impudent brat, and let Mr Maguire sit down

Chorus
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Ah, you know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out of the town
Arragh get up out of that, you impudent brat, and let Mr Maguire sit down

Now the first that I met her, was at the dance at Tarmagee
And I very kindly asked her, if she'd dance a step with me
Then I asked if I could see her home, if I'd be going her way
And whenever I'd come in at the door you could hear her mammy say
Johnny get up from the fire, get up and give the man a seat
Can't you see it's Mr. Maguire and he's courtin' your sister Kate
Ah, you know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out of the town
Arragh get up out of that, you impudent brat, and let Mr Maguire sit down

Chorus
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Ah, you know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out of the town
Arragh get up out of that, you impudent brat, and let Mr Maguire sit down

Ah, but now that we are married, sure, her mother's changed her mind
Just because I spent the legacy her father left behind
She hasn't got the decency to bid me time of day
That whenever I come in at the door you'd hear the ould one say
Johnny come up to the fire, come up, you're sitting in the draft
Can't you see it's ould Maguire and he nearly drives me daft
Ah I don't know what gets into him, for he's always on the tare
Arragh just sit where you are and never you dare to give ould Maguire the chair

Chorus
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-owdle
Diddle e dowdle-owdle-ow
Ah I don't know what gets into him, for he's always on the tare
Arragh just sit where you are and never you dare to give ould Maguire the chair

Another version

Oh, me name it is Maguire and I'll quickly tell to you
Of a pretty girl that I admire, called Kitty Donoghue
She's fair and fat and forty and believe me when I say
Every time that we go courtin' you could hear her mother say

Chorus
Johnny get up from the fire, get up and give the man a seat
Don't you see it's Mr. Maguire and he's courtin' your sister Kate
Ah, you know very well he owns a farm a little way out of the town
Will you get up out of there, and take the air, and let Mr Maguire sit down

Well the first that I met her, was the Pattern at Tralee
And I asked her very kindly, if she'd dance a step with me
She wanted to know if I'd see her home, and with her have some tea
Well I no sooner got inside the door when I heard her mother say

I asked her if she'd marry me, and become my darling bride
And we are going to tie the knot, before the next Shrovetide
When we're in our little love nest, we'll have currant cake and tae
We'll invite her mother to visit us, I'll imagine I hear her mother say

Regards Mick Bracken

Although someone on this site made some disparaging remarks about the Irish Rovers, I've always found them to be a very entertaining band, and their CDs are a great source of material because everyone wants to sing along. Here is their version of Mick Maguire; I worked out the chords by referring to the fiddle tune called "Napoleon Crossing the Rocky Mountains", after finding a reference to the connection on this thread. Cool, eh? Thanks for the help.

MICK MAGUIRE

Dm C Dm
Ach, get out of that, ye impudent brat, let Mr. Maguire sit down


Well the first time I met her was at a dance at Donaghadee
I very kindly asked her would she dance a step with me
I asked if I could see her home, if she'd be goin' me way
But whenever I come in at the door, you could hear the ould one say

Johnny get up from the fire, get up, and give yer man a seat
Can't you see it's Mick Maguire and he's courtin' your sister Kate
You know very well he owns a farm a wee bit out o' the town
Ach, get out of that, ye impudent brat, let Mr. Maguire sit down

Ah but now that we are married, her Mam has changed her mind
Because I spent the money that me Daddy left behind
That she hasn't got the dacency to give me time of the day
And whenever I come in at the door, you can hear her Mammy say

Johnny come up to the fire, come up, you're sittin' in a draft
Can't you see it's ould Maguire, and he nearly drives me daft
Sure I don't know what gets in him and he's always on the tear
So just sit where ye are, and never you dare, give ould Maguire the chair

Diddley oudl oudl oudl oudl Diddley oudl dow
Diddley oudl oudl oudl oudl Diddley oudl dow
Sure I don't know what gets in him and he's always on the tear
So just sit where ye are, and never you dare, give ould Maguire the chair

Diddley oudl oudl oudl oudl Diddley oudl dow
Diddley oudl oudl oudl oudl Diddley oudl dow
Sure I don't know what gets in him and he's always on the tear
So just sit where ye are, and never you dare [clap clap] give ould Maguire the chair


Great song! Enjoy!

Perhaps someone ought to start a thread,,,,,how many bands are called the "Irish Rovers"? I know of three. One in Benidorm, one in Manchester and one in the US.

Best version ever of this song was from Charlie Magee and his Gay Guitar, recorded on Glenside, and a favourite on The Walton's Programme in the halcyon days of RTE radio.
