Whiskey in the Jar lyrics

As I was a goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met with captain Farrell and his money he was counting
I first produced my pistol and I then produced my rapier
Saying "Stand and deliver" for he were a bold deceiver

Chorus:
Mush-a ring dum-a do dum-a da
Wack fall the daddy-o, wack fall the daddy-o
There's whiskey in the jar

I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy

(Chorus)

I went up to my chamber, all for to take a slumber
I dreamt of gold and jewels and for sure 't was no wonder
But Jenny blew me charges and she filled them up with water
Then sent for captain Farrell to be ready for the slaughter

(Chorus)

't was early in the morning, just before I rose to travel
Up comes a band of footmen and likewise captain Farrell
I first produced me pistol for she stole away me rapier
I couldn't shoot the water, so a prisoner I was taken

(Chorus)

Now there's some take delight in the carriages a rolling
and others take delight in the hurling and the bowling
but I take delight in the juice of the barley
and courting pretty fair maids in the morning bright and early

(Chorus)

If anyone can aid me 't is my brother in the army
If I can find his station in Cork or in Killarney
And if he'll go with me, we'll go rovin' through Killkenny
And I'm sure he'll treat me better than my own a-sporting Jenny

(Chorus)

Deutsche Übersetzung:

Whiskey In The Jar Songtext Übersetzung:
Als ich über die Cork & Kerry Berge ging
Sah ich Captain Farrell und sein Geld, das er zählte
Ich zog erst meine Pistole, dann zog ich mein Rapier
Ich sagte:"Liefer es schnell aus oder der Teufel soll dich holen"

Ich nahm all sein Geld und es war ein netter Haufen
Ich nahm all sein Geld und brachte es Heim zu Molly
Sie schwor dass sie mich liebe, nein, nie würde sie mich verlassen
Aber der teufel soll sie holen, denn sie hat mich so leicht ausgetrickst

Musharain dumadodumada
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Es ist Whiskey im Krug

Betrunken und erschöpft, ging ich in Mollys Zimmer
Nahm Molly mit mir mit, aber ich erkannte die Gefahr nicht
Um ungefähr sechs oder sieben kam Captain Farrel herein
Ich sprang auf und feuerte meine Pistolen ab und erschoss in aus beiden Läufen, yeah

Musharain dumadodumada
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Es ist Whiskey im Krug

Naja, manche Angeln gern, manche schleppen gern welche ab
Und manche hören gerne, hören gerne die Kanonenkugeln donnern
Aber ich, ich schlafe gern, besonders in Mollys Zimmer
Aber hier bin ich im Gefängnis, hier habe ich Kette und Kugel, yeah

Musharain dumadodumada
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Prügel für meinen Daddy - o
Es ist Whiskey im Krug

Musharain dumadodumada, yeah
Musharain dumadodumada, yeah
Musharain dumadodumada, yeah
