Текст песни Gaelic Storm - Johnny Jump Up

I'll tell you a story that happened to me One day as I went out to Youghal by the Sea The sun it was bright and the day it was warm Says I, A quiet pint wouldn't do me no harm I went in to the barman, I says give me a stout Says the barman, I'm sorry all the beer tis sold out Try whiskey or vodka, ten years in the wood Says I, I'll try cider, I heard that it's good Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up After low'rin' the third head'd straight for the yard Where I bumped into Brophy The big civic guard "Come here to me boy Don't you know we're in the law" Well I upped with my fist and I shot to his jaw He fell to the ground with his knees crumpled up But it T'wasn't I hit him t'was the johnny jump The next thing I met down in Youghal by the Sea Was a cripple on crutches, and says he to me "I'm afraid of me life I'll be hit by a car Would you help me across To the Railwayman's Bar?" And after three pints of the cider so sweet He threw down ‘is crutches n' he danced on ‘is feet Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up Now I went up the Lee road a friend for to see They call it the Madhouse in Cork by the Lee When I got up there, the truth I do to tell They had the poor bugger locked up in his cell Says the guard testing him, Say these words if you can "Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran" Tell them I'm not crazy, tell them I'm not mad T'was only six pints of that cider I had A man died in the Union by the name of McNabb They washed him and placed him outside on a slab And after the corroner his measurements did take His wife took him home to a bloody fine wake 'Twas about 12 o'clock and the beer it was high The corpse he sat up and he says with a sigh "I can't get to heaven, they won't let me up Till I bring them a pint of the Johnny Jump Up" Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up I'll tell you a story that happened to me One day as I went out to Youghal by the Sea The sun it was bright and the day it was warm Says I, A quiet pint wouldn't do me no harm I went in to the barman, I says give me a stout Says the barman, I'm sorry all the beer tis sold out Try whiskey or vodka, ten years in the wood Says I, I'll try cider, I heard that it's good Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up After lowerin' the third headed strai't for the yard Where I bumped into Brophy The big civic guard "Come ‘ere to me boy Don't you know we're in the law" Well I upped with my fist and I shot to his jaw He fell to the ground with his knees crumpled up But it wasn't I hit him t'was the johnny jump up. The next thing I met down in Youghal by the Sea Was a cripple on crutches, and says he to me: "I'm afraid of me life I'll be hit by a car Would you help me across To the Railwayman's Bar?" And after three pints of the cider so sweet He threw down ‘is crutches n' he danced on ‘is feet Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up Now I went up the Lee road a friend for to see They call it the Madhouse in Cork by the Lee When I got up there, the truth I do to tell They had the poor bugger locked up in his cell Says the guard testing him, Say these words if you can "Around the rugged rocks the ragged rascal ran" Tell them I'm not crazy, tell them I'm not mad T'was only six pints of that cider I had A man died in the Union by the name of McNabb They washed him and placed him outside on a slab And after the coroner his measurements did take His wife took him home to a bloody fine wake 'Twas about 12 o'clock and the beer it was high The corpse he sat up and he says with a sigh "I can't get to heaven, they won't let me up Till I bring them a pint of the Johnny Jump Up" Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up Oh never, oh never, oh never again If I live to a hundred or a hundred and ten I fell to the ground and I couldn't get up After drinking a pint of the Johnny Jump Up
