Galway Bay Lyrics

Maybe someday, I'll go back again to Ireland
If only my dear wife would pass away
She nearly has my heart broke with all her naggin'
She's got a mouth as big as galway bay

See her drinkin' 16 pints of Pat's blue ribbon
And then she can walk home without a sway
If the sea were beer instead of salty water
She would live and die in galway bay

See her drinkin 16 pints at pat joe murphys
When the barman says "I think its time to go"
She doesn't try to speak to him in gaelic
But a language that the clergy do not know

On her back she has tatooed a map of Ireland
And when she takes her bath on Saturday
She rubs the sunlight soap around by Claddaugh
Just to watch the suds roll down on Galway Bay
