Billy O'Shea

Traditional Arrangement Michael Black
We all got drunk in Dublin City Fall down me Billy We all got drunk and the more's the pity Fall down Billy O'Shea CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea We lay down on Sir John Rogerson's Quay And when we woke up we were out to sea CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea We are no sailors Captain dear And a bit unhappy to reef or steer CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea The Captain said, "I've a cure for that And here for a start is a dose of the cat." CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea He sent him up to the topmast yard When he hit the deck he took it hard CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea We wrapped him up in the canvas sail And we lowered him gently o'er the rail CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea Over the side and down he goes To Davy Jones with a stitch through his nose CHORUS: Fall down, fall down, fall down, me Billy, We’re bound away for Americay, Fall down Billy O’Shea
