Quare Things In Dublin
|There's quare things in Dublin between Howth and Crumlin.|
|Down in Rings||end there's a|| five-legged|| cat,|
|A three-||legged donkey, two-headed monkey.|
|There's|| nothing so|| quare as this|| four-faced old|| clock.|
|There's a clock in old Dublin that stands on a steeple,|
|Proud and er||ect with four|| faces so|| tall.|
|While|| one of them says you are late, it's deceiving.|
|The|| other one|| says it's a|| quarter be||fore.|
|You run down the|| road and he|| grins as you|| hurry,|
|Then|| just round the|| corner you|| look up in sur||prise.|
|It's|| not quite the same as it was on the last street.|
|This bloody|| blackguard is|| telling me|| lies.|
There's a half-hour to spare. Now how will I kill it
I'll nip up the road and nip in for a jar.
With the chimes of four bells, I look back in amazement.
His other side has gone past the hour.
There's a lesson in life to adopt and interpret.
It applies to all people regardless of race.
Don't put your trust or your faith in a person
If sometimes they seem to have more than one face
