Ring dumma do damma da
Wack fol daddy-oh
Wack fol daddy-oh
There's whiskey in the jar

As I was goin' over the far famed Kerry mountains
I met the Captain Farrell and his money he was countin'
I first produced me pistol and then produced me rapier
Sayin' "Stand and deliver, for I am the bold deceiver!"

Musha ring dumma do damma da
Wack fol daddy-oh
Wack fol daddy-oh
There's whiskey in the jar

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

It's 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
But Jenny drew me charges and she filled them up with water

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
