CLANCY LOWERED THE BOOM (Hy Heath / John Lange) Dennis Day Also recorded by : Petula Clark; Bing Crosby; Dan Dailey; Hit Crew; Donald Peers; The Shamrock Singers. Now Clancy was a peaceful man If you know what I mean, The cops picked up the pieces After Clancy left the scene, He never looked for trouble That's a fact you can assume, But never-the-less when trouble would press. Clancy lowered the boom! Chorus: Oh, that Clancy, Oh that Clancy Whenever they got his Irish up, Clancy lowered the boom! O'Leary was a fighting man, They all knew he was tough, He strutted 'round the neighborhood, A-shootin' off his guff, He picked a fight with Clancy, Then and there he sealed his doom, Before you could shout "O'Leary, look out!" Clancy lowered the boom! Chorus: Oh, that Clancy, Oh that Clancy Whenever they got his Irish up, Clancy lowered the boom! O'Hollihan delivered ice To Misses Clancy's flat, He'd always linger for a while, To talk of this and that, One day he kissed her, Just as Clancy walked into the room, Before you could say the time of day, Clancy lowered the boom! Chorus: Oh, that Clancy, Oh that Clancy Whenever they got his Irish up, Clancy lowered the boom! Sure it was the most beautiful sight you ever did see when Clancy Lowered The Boom (Contributed by RumandCocaCola44 - March 2005) (bonus verse #1) Now Clancy left the barber shop With tonic on his hair. He went into the pool room And met O'Reilly there. O'Reilly said "For goodness sake, Now do I smell perfume" Before you could stack Your cue on the Rack Clancy lowered the boom.
