  • 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
