Was it Dave and Vera?
They all went out in a truck - bumping along and the dog was ill.
Great song - anyone remember it?

No, Stanley Accrington. I have it on a cassette called Sick As A Parrot.

According to Stanley Accrington's web site the song is called 'ARRY THE DOG.

That didn't help me find any lyrics or sound files, though.

There was Ralph O'Rourke having a retch
Chuck had a chuck in my truck
Hughie and Eve were having a good heave
And Harry the dog went 'Ruff'

All I can remember.

Good song for emptying the room:-)

I can't believe I am about to post this. At great personal cost, I have played the cassette and typed it out for you.

If you are of a delicate disposition DO NOT READ ANY FURTHER. It's revolting!

It was 69 around that time in the bar of the Dog and Duck,
Some friends and I drank the place dry then we went for a ride in me truck.
At first, nothing was wrong and we all sang songs, but boozing, we shouldn't have chanced it,
When over a bump, to my throat came a lump....as the Romans say "sic in transit"
And there was Ralph O'Rourke, and Ruth had a retch, Chuck had a chuck in me truck;
Hughie and Eve had a good heave and 'Arry the dog said "Ruff".

Well, I was sick as a parrot and a trail of diced carrots went slithering over the wheel,
Then Hughie felt spewie and threw up Drambuie over Ruth who let out a great squeal.
There was Ralph O'Rourke etc.

Well, the next to go with a mighty throw was Ralph O'Rourke from Kildare,
This champion hurler came a purler all over the back of me hair.
There was etc.

Well, everyone chundered, it sounded like thunder. The horn went honk as well.
I lost me nerve, gave a swerve and everyone choked on the smell.
There was etc.

Well, there we all were shaken and ill upside down on the verge,
It wasn't much fun, but worse was to come when 'Arry the dog gives a surge.
There was etc.

Sorry
