ALL OF IT (Garry Briain) Skylark - 1979 Wild Mountain Thyme - 2001 Munnelly Flaherty Masure - 2006 Oh, dear, what's the matter, they're rowin' and squabblin' There seems to be something awry For the last forty nights they've been having a fight And we always can hear the same cry Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all The Priest at the altar was noticed to falter And he seemed to be weak at the knees When the Deacon poured drops of red wine from his cups We could make out his virtuous pleas Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all The fiddler was playin' below in the kitchen In the wee after hours that are best When he left out a beat in the turn of the reel And the dancers all stopped to request Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all The barman was spilling, and wiping and spilling And the drinkers discussed this and that When his thumb in the measure he aroused their displeasure And he brought this response from one pat Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all Now I've not the gumption nor hard neck to finish This song's nothing less than obscene But I trust your good taste, and I know you won't waste Yours and my precious time if you scream Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all EXTRA VERSE written by Betsy McGovern: The barmaid was filling and wiping and spilling While the drinkers all guzzled and sipped When the man paid his check and he took back his change She had this response to his tip Give me all of it, all of it, not just a bit of it None of your quarters, your thirds or your halves For the long and the tall, and the rise and the fall of it All of it, all of it, all (Contributed by Mel - December 2010)
