Some Say the Devil Is Dead

This song is by Wolfe Tones and appears on the album Belt Of The Celts (1978) and on the compilation album Greatest Hits (1986).

Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again, more say he rose
Again
And joined the British army
Feed the pigs and milk the cow, milk the cow, milk the cow
Feed the pigs and milk the cow, so early in the morning
Tuck your leg up, Paddy, dear. Paddy, dear, I'm over here! Tuck your leg
Up, Paddy dear
It's time to stop your yawning
Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again, more say he rose
Again
And joined the British army
Katie, she is tall and thin, tall and thin, tall and thin
Katie, she is tall and thin. She likes a drop of brandy
Drinks it in the bed at night, drinks it in the bed at night, drinks it in the
Bed
At night
It makes her nice and randy
Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again, more say he rose
Again
And joined the British army
My man is six foot tall, six foot tall, six foot tall
My man is six foot tall, he likes his sugar candy
Goes to bed at six o'clock, goes to bed at six o'clock, goes to bed at six
O'clock
He's lazy, fat and dandy
Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again, more say he rose
Again
And joined the British army
My wife, she has a hairy thing, a hairy thing, a hairy thing
My wife, she has a hairy thing, she showed it to me Sunday
She bought it in the furrier shop, bought it in the furrier shop, bought it in
The furrier shop
It's going back on Monday
Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again, more say he rose
Again
And joined the British army
