Il testo originale di Some Say The Devil Is Dead

Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead, and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again
More say he rose again and joined the British Army (Rit.)

Feed the pigs and milk the cow, and milk the cow, and milk the cow
Feed the pigs and milk the cow, early in the morning
Cock your leg, oh Paddy dear, Paddy dear I’m over here
Cock your leg, oh Paddy dear, it’s time to stop your yawning

(Rit.)

Katie she is tall and thin, she’s tall and thin, and tall and thin
Katie she is tall and thin, and like her drops of brandy
Drinks it in the bed each night, drinks it in the bed each night
Drinks it in the bed each night, it makes her nice and randy

(Rit.)

The wife she has the hairy thing, a hairy thing, a hairy thing
The wife she has the hairy thing, she showed it to me on Sunday
She bought it in the furrier’s shop, bought it in the furrier’s shop
She bought it in the furriers’s shop, it’s going back on Monday

Some say the devil is dead, the devil is dead, the devil is dead
Some say the devil is dead, and buried in Killarney
More say he rose again, more say he rose again
More say he rose again and joined the British Army

My one’s over six feet tall, six feet tall, six feet tall
My one’s over six feet tall, she likes the sugar candy
Goes to bed at six o’clock, goes to bed at six o’clock
Goes to bed at six o’clock, she’s lazy, fat and dandy
