Song Meaning
Verse 1
Oh if you've got a wingo, take her up to Ringo
Where the waxies sing-o all the day.
If you've had your fill of porter and you can't go any
Further
Just give your men the order, "Back to the quay"
Verse 2
And take her up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Take her up to Monto langeroo! To you
Verse 3
Well you've heard of Butcher Foster, the dirty old
Imposter
He took his mot and lost her up in Furry Glen
He first put on his bowler, then he buttoned up his
Trousers
And he whistled for a growler and he said "My men"
Verse 4
And take me up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Take me up to Monto langeroo! To you
Verse 5
Well you've heard of the Dublin Fusiliers, the dirty
Old bamboozaliers
They went and got the childer, one, two, three
Marchin' from the Linen Hall, there's one for every
Cannon ball
And Vicky's goin' to send youse all o'er the sea
Verse 6
But First go up to Monto, Monto, Monto
First go up to Monto langeroo! To you
Verse 7
Well Carry told him, "Skin the goat"; O'Donnell put him
On the boat
He never should have been afloat, the dirty skite
It wasn't very sensible to tell on the Invincibles
Verse 8
They stood up for the principals, day and night
Verse 9
They're goin' up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Goin' up to Monto langeroo! To you
Verse 10
Now the czar of Russia, and the king of Prussia
Landed in the Phoenix in a big balloon
They asked the Police band to play the "The wearin' o'
The Green"
But the buggers in the depot didn't know the tune
Verse 11
So they all went up to Monto, Monto, Monto
They all went up to Monto langeroo! To you
Verse 12
The Queen she came to call on us, she wanted to see all
Of us,
I'm glad she didn't fall on us, she's eighteen stone
Well "Mr. Neill, Lord Mayor", says she, "Is this all
You've got to show to me?"
"why no ma'am, there's some more to see ? p?g mo thoin
Verse 13
And he took her up to Monto, Monto, Monto
He took her up to Monto, langeroo! To you
Verse 14
Well if you've got a wingo, take her up to Ringo
Where the waxies sing-o all the day.
If you've had your fill of porter and you can't go any
Further
Just give your men the order, "Back to the quay"
Verse 15
And take her up to Monto, Monto, Monto
Take her up to Monto langeroo! To you
