Henrik Norbeck's Song Lyrics

Dicey Riley

(Dicey Reilly)
Sheet Music (and more information about this song)

Poor aul Dicey Riley she has taken to the sup,
Poor aul Dicey Riley she will never give it up,
It's off each morning to the pop, and then she's in for another little drop,
And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley.

She walks along Fitzgibbon Street with an independent air,
And then its down by Summerhill and as the people stare,
She says it's nearly half past one, It's time I went for another little one,
And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley.

At two pubs close and off she goes as happy as a lark,
She'll find a bench to sleep it off down in St. Patrick's Park
She wakes at five feeling in the pink, and says, "It's time for another little drink"
And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley

She travels far to a dockside bar to have another round
After one or two or three she doesn't feel quite sound
After four she's a bit unstable, after five underneath the table
And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley

They carry her home at twelve o'clock as they do every night,
Bring her inside, put her on the bed and then turn out the light
Next morning she goes out of bed, and looks for a cure for her head
And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley
