Tipping It Up To Nancy Lyrics

Tipping It Up to Nancy

Oh, there's been a woman in our town, a woman you ought
know well
She dearly loved her husband and another man twice as
well

cho: With me right finnickineerio, me tip finnick a
wall
With me right finnickineerio, We're tipping it up to
Nancy

She went down to the chemist shop some remedies for to
buy,
Have you anything in your chemist shop to make me old
man blind?

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.'

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.

If in this world I cannot see, here I cannot stay.
I'd drown myself; "Come on," says she, "and I'll show
you the way"

She led him to the river, she led him to the brim
But sly enough of Martin, it was him that shoved her
in.

She swam through the river, she swam through the brine
"Oh Martin, dear Martin. Don't leave me behind."

"Oh Martin, dear Martin. Don't leave me behind."
"Yerra shut up outa that ye silly aul fool', ye know
poor Martin is blind"

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.
