Tipping it up to Nancy

There been a woman in our town, a woman you ought know welly
she loved her husband dearly and another man twice as well
With me right Finnickineerio, me tip finnick a wall
with me right Finnickineerio, we're tipping it up to Nancy

have you anything in your chemist shop to make me old man blind
With me right Finnickineerio . . .

Give him eggs and marrowbones and make him suck them all
before he has the last one sucked, he won't see you at all
With me right Finnickineerio . . .

She gave him eggs and marrowbones and made him suck them all
before he had the last one sucked, he couldn't see her at all
With me right Finnickineerio . . .

If in this world I cannot see, here I cannot stay
I'd rather go and drown myself
Come on, she says, I'll show you the way
me right Finnickineerio . . .

She led him to the river, she led him to the brim
but sly enough of Martin, it was him that shoved her in
With me right Finnickineerio . . .

She swam through the river, she swam through the brine
oh Martin, dear Martin don't leave me behind
yerra shut up outa that ye silly aul fool

Whith me right Finnickineerio, we're tipping it up to Nancy

There's nine in me family and none of them is my own
I wish that each and every man would come and claim his own
With me right Finnickineerio . . .
