I'm trying to find the final verse to that classic, raunchy tune Seven Drunken Nights. If you know the song, you know what I'm talking about. As far as I can remember it goes something like this:

As I came home on Sunday night, as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a thing there in the thing, where my old thing should be.
So I call to the wife and I says to her, "Hey wife! Could you kindly tell to me,
Who owns that thing there in the thing where my old thing should be?"
"Ah, yer drunk, yer drunk, you silly old fool, till ya cannot see.
Sure, that's a lovely cucumber me mother sent to me."
As many's a day I've travelled, a hundred miles or more,
But a cucumber with...

And that's all I know. Any help is truly appreciated.

The last verse I know comes from Steve, the piano player in Durty Nelly's on the River Walk in San Antonio, and it goes:

When I came home on Saturday night, as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a man runnin' from me door at a quarter past three.
I says to me wife, the joy of me life, "Could ye kindly tell to me,
Who is that man runnin' from me door at a quarter past three?"
And she said... (etc.)
"'Tis an English tax collector the Queen has sent to me."
Now 'tis many a night I've travelled, a thousand mile or more,
But an Englishman who can last past three, sure I've never seen that before.

I'm looking for the words for Sunday night, the SEVENTH drunken night. Not many people know it because it's pretty offensive. Someone out there must know it. Again, all help is greatly appreciated.

Got everything I need now. It was: "A cucumber with a foreskin sure I've never seen before." Someone should add this classic to the database!

SEVEN DRUNKEN NIGHTS

When I got home on Saturday night as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a head upon the bed where my ould head should be.
So I called to my wife an' said to her, "Now is this fair to me?
Whose is the head upon the bed where my ould head should be?"
Ah y're drunk, y're drunk, yuh silly old thing. Still y' cannot see.
That's a loverly baby that me mother sent to me."
Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
But a whiskers on a baby, sure, I've never seen before!

And when I got home on Sunday night as drunk as drunk could be,
I saw a thing within the thing where my ould thing should be.
So I called to my wife an' said to her, "Now is this fair to me?
Whose is the thing within the thing where my ould thing should be?"
Ah y're drunk, y're drunk, yuh silly old thing. Still y' cannot see.
That's a loverly carrot that me mother sent to me."
Well, it's many a day I travelled, a hundred miles or more,
But a foreskin on a carrot, sure, I've never seen before!

(Recorded by The Dubliners)

G'day,
How do you circumcise a whale?
Send down four skin divers.

Cheers,
Alan

I was researching for another thread (Lyric Add: born about 10,000 years ago). Picked out my old copy of Blood, Booze, 'n Bones, Elektra 108, recorded by Ed Mc Curdy.

He credits this tune to Child #274 stating it was originally a Scottish ballad.

Darn it, Roger, why doesn't Elektra reissue some of those gems?
