  • Traditional lyrics sung to tune of "The Girl I Left Behind Me." Intriguing tune history at http://www.contemplator.com/england/waxie.html.

    Says my aul' wan to your aul' wan

    "Will ye go to the Waxie's dargle?"

    Says your aul' wan to my aul' wan,

    "I haven't got a farthing.

    I went up to Monto town

    To see Uncle McArdle

    But he wouldn't give me a half a crown

    For to go to the Waxie's dargle."

    --"Waxie's Dargle," trad., arr. Pogues, c. 1985
