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
