If you'd like a copy of the song on cassette, please send $2 to cover tape and mailing to: Bobby O'Brien, 49 McCleary Avenue, Amsterdam, NY 12010-2816 USA.

THE COAL QUAY MARKET SONG
(Trad. arr. A. Russell)

When I went down to the Coal Quay Port to buy an old chemise
The first thing I picked up in me hand I found it full of fleas
How much do you want for that old thing, Eighteen pence says she
Eighteen pence for that old thing, do you think I am a fool-oh
 
CHORUS
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, kitty pallalla pallie-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, me whack follol le nai-do
 
So I took it home and I washed it out, hung it up to dry
How much did you pay for that old thing, Eighteen pence says I
Eighteen pence for that old thing, do you think I am fool
Take it out of the house you dirty old louse, or Ill wallop you with a stool-oh
 
CHORUS
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, kitty pallalla pallie-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, me whack follol le nai-do
 
So I went back to the Coal Quay Port, says Maam would you be so kind
To take back the old chemise that hangs so long behind
The woman she gave a look at me and her lips began to squeeze
And all around the Coal Quay sure, she walloped me with the chemise-oh
 
CHORUS
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, kitty pallalla pallie-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, me whack follol le nai-do
 
So come all ye pretty females, if ya want to buy new clothes
Never buy a chemise that ll hang down to your toes
Never let your man interfere with your starch and blue
And if youre gonna buy a chemise, be sure ya buy one new
 
CHORUS
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, kitty pallalla pallie-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, me whack follol le nai-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, kitty pallalla pallie-do
Kitty pallalla pallalla pallie, me whack follol le nai-do

It would be no harm to mention Jimmy Crowley with reference to this song. I think he was responsible for reviving and popularising the song.
