Oh, take me again to those days! The Clancy Brothers singin’ over there on Hudson Street, at the White Horse Tavern.
T’was back in the 60’s as I recall it … I was a wee bairn … oops …wrong Brits! Actually I was late teenager and madly in love with folk music. And they were best of it, and gorgeous, I don’t mind sayin’.
Three curly-haired brothers — Paddy, Tom and Liam, in Irish-white wool sweaters, plus the skinny Tommy Makem on the tin whistle, don’t cha know.
Oh, lads, what music they made!!
With me ing-twing of an ing-thing of an i-doe
With me ing-twing of an ing-thing of an i-day
With me roo-boo-boo roo-boo-boo randy
And me lab stone keeps beating away!
