The Saw Doctors Joyce Country Céili Band Lyrics

Last updated: 10/25/2009 11:00:00 AM

A group of young musicians including the Walsh sisters from Crimtin East, used to assemble in Clonbur, in Joyce Country, almost every second Friday night, Pearse christened them the Joyce Country ceili Band, hence the song.

We’re the Joyce country ceili band
Playing away and we’re doing grand
We’re singing a song won’t you give us a hand
‘cos we’re the Joyce country ceili band

Friday night , off we go
Tune the fiddle , strain the bow
Take it handy for the first few sets
Sure there’s hardly anyone listening yet

Thomas and Mary out on the floor
Well they never lost it, that’s for sure
in his sparking shoes and his daz-white shirt
She’s got a brand new perm
And a pleated skirt

We do do’s and functions
Weddings and wakes
Meats and salads, buns and cakes
Well if you need a few tunes just
give us a call
For the house the pub or the parish hall
There’s a princess on the floor all night
She can fairly throw them shapes alright
Howya Madge are you on you own?
How’reya fixed far a seat back home

Saw doctors best song yet..calling all culchies! | Reviewer: Anonymous | 5/5/2005

Best drunken song sung ever on the 16A bus into Dublin City!! Entertains many at parties and wakes up even more on the way home! Catchy, quirky and full of priceless expressions!
