Irish Song Lyrics - Biddy McGraw

Oh let me tell you of a story that will give you a shock
a story'bout a murder on St. John's Dock
the person in question was Biddy McGraw
and she strangled two sailors with the straps of her bra


CHORUS
Too rah hoo rah hah, fiddle dee da ra
too rah too rah too rah hah


Well they tried to get her drunk on her own corn liquor
but as quick as they were be Jaysus she was quicker
She remembered she was told by her ma and her da
to keep both hands on the straps of yer bra CHORUS


so she wrapped those straps around the big sailor's head
and she threw him in the river like a crust of bread
then the small sailor laughed and he said "Haw Haw"
so she stuffed his gob with the rest of her bra
His face turned purple and before he fell...
she picked up her miniskirt and ran like hell CHORUS
She went home that night 'bout a quarter to one
happy and contented with a job well done
she told her story to her ma and her da
they said,"Tanks be to God you were wearin' yer bra!" CHORUS


Now all you ladies who go walking late at night
don't keep the straps of yer bra too tight
just remember the story of Biddy McGraw
and keep both yer hands on the straps of yer bra CHORUS
