DT Lyrics:

I'm looking for the name, and hopefully the lyrics, to a folk song (possibly irish). the song tells the colourful song tells the story of a woman who makes a deal with the devil, betting him that he can't 'satisfy' her. he tries for several nights in a row but is unsuccessful. it's quite funny. does anyone know anything more about it?

Click here for Women Are Worse than the Men. Looks like one of many variants on the theme of the Devil and the Farmers Wife.

Neither of those; it's a modern composition by Mick Ryan, in the DT as (for some reason)  DEVIL VERSUS THE WIDOW

The song is properly called The Widow's Promise, though some people know it as The Devil and the Widow.  See also Lyr Req: The Widow and the Devil.

It might be more accurate to describe the song as English rather than Irish.
