The Mero Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Somebody under the bed
Whoever can it be?
I feel so very nervous,
I call for Joanie
Joanie lights the candle but there's nobody there
Hay-hi-diddly-I
And out goes she
Verse 2
Skippin' ropes still turnin',
Children at their play
In and out of Catherine St,
In and out to pray
I haven't prayed for 20 years
Or sung a happy song
Since praying went with innocence
And the divil played along
Verse 3
And we all went up to the Mero,
Hey there who's your man?
It's only Johnny 40 coats,
Sure he's a desperate man
Verse 4
Bang Bang shoots the buses
With his golden key
Hay-hi-diddly-I
And out goes she
Verse 5
Me father was a stater
And me mother loved a tan
She loved her ham and her sausages
And her soldier fancy man
Verse 6
Nora's up in Jacobs,
And Mary's on the town
And I joined the transport union when they said me nose was brown
Verse 7
And we all went up to the Mero
Hey there who's your man?
It's Alfie Byrne out walking,
Sure he's a dacent man
Verse 8
Bang Bang shoots the buses
With his golden key
Hay-hi-diddly-I
And out goes she
Verse 9
I'm a tanner for the Mero
And me compo money's hid
If Mary's in the faffity way
She can blame the Cisco kid
I'll be langers in the mornin,
Me longers need a patch
Awh jaysus there's Con Martin
I hope yis win the match
Verse 10
My Uncle had a wolfhound
That never had to pee
But Haylemon snatched it
Down on Eden Quay
Verse 11
Now I have my primo
And me scaffolders are blue
For helping the black babies
And Dolly Fosset too
Verse 12
And we all went up to the Mero
Hey there who's your man
It's Brendan Behan out walking
Sure he's the ginger man
Verse 13
Bang Bang shoots the buses
With his golden key
Hay-hi-diddly-I
And out goes she
Verse 14
It's true that Dublin's changing
Since the pillar was blown down
By the winds of violence that are buggering up the town
We used to solve our difference
With a diggin' match and a jar
Now they're all playin' bang bang
That's goin' too bleedin' far
Verse 15
And we all go up to the Mero
Hey there who's yer man
It's only me guardian angel
Get a large one for yer man
Verse 16
There's no use bleedin' rushin'
Sure now it's the holy hour
A plenary indulgence
And another baby power
