CI dreamt a dream the other night I Fcouldn't sleep a wink ThGe rats were tryin' to count the sheep and I was off the drink There were Cfootsteps in the parlour and Fvoices on the stairs GI was climbin' up the walls and movin' round the chairs. I lCooked out from under the blanket Fup at the fireplace. TheG Pope and John F. Kennedy were starin' in me face. Suddenly iCt dawned at me I was getting the old FD.T.s When the CGhild o' Prague began to dance around the mantlepiece.

Chorus

CGoodbye to the Port and Brandy, to the VFodka and the Stag, To the SGchmiddick and the Harpic, the boCttled draught and keg. As I sat lookin' up the Guinness ad I could Fnever figure out How your Gman stayed up on the surfboard after 14 pints of Cstout. Well I swore upon the bible I'd never touch a drop. My heart was palpitatin' I was sure 'twas going to stop, Thinkin' I was dyin' I gave my soul to God to keep. A tenner to St. Anthony to help me get some sleep. I fell into an awful nightmare - got a dreadful shock. When I dreamt there was no Duty-free at the airport down in Knock. George Seawright was sayin' the rosary and SPUC were on the pill.** Frank Patterson was gargled and he singin' Spancil Hill.

Chorus

I dreamt that Mr. Haughey had recaptured Crossmaglen Then Garret got re-elected and gave it back again. Dick Spring and Roger Casement were on board the Marita-Ann As she sailed into Fenit they were singin' Banna Strand. I dreamt Archbishop McNamara was on Spike Island for 3 nights Havin' been arrested for supportin' Traveller's rights. I dreamt that Ruairi Quinn was smokin' marijuana in the Dail Barry Desmond handin' Frenchies out to scuts in Fianna Fail.

Chorus

I dreamt of Nell McCafferty and Mary Kenny too The things that we got up to, but I'm not tellin' you. I dreamt I was in a jacuzzi along with Alice Glenn 'twas then I knew I'd never ever, ever drink again.
