Galway Bay Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
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
Verse 2
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
Verse 3
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
Verse 4
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
