McKeownegans Wake (feat. Dave McKeown in a song about Dave McKeown) by Derek Cornett published on 2013/03/07 03:51:19 +0000 Soundcloud Hero Dave McKeown is finally immortalized in a re-imagined Irish Drinking Song.... :) There once was a lad named Dave McKeown, who lived down by the sea. Although he was no sailor, down by the sea he be. He played his pipes for money, he played his pipes for free... ... and after a coupla pints of ale, he’d sing this melody... Chorus: Too Rah Loo... Too Rah La.... By the bra of Biddy McGraw... I am the finest piper-man this world has ever saw. One night whilst he was pipin’, he spied a bonny lass. She stepped down from the bar stool, and handed him a glass. A brilliant pint of black stuff, but poisoned, doncha’ see? A piper hatin’ woman... she “kilt” him serially. Chorus: Too Rah Loo... Too Rah La.... By the bra of Biddy McGraw... Murder-ed the best piper... ... the world has ever saw. No finer wake was given. The whiskey it did flow. A fight broke out and many a gobshite traded several blows. Someone threw a noggin’ of whiskey on Dave’s bed.... ... it woke him from his slumber, he rose right up and said.... Chorus: Too Rah Loo... Too Rah La.... By the bra of Biddy McGraw... What in thunderin’ blazes? Ye thought that I was dead? Chorus: Too Rah Loo... Too Rah La.... By the bra of Biddy McGraw... He is the greatest piper-man..... the world has ever saw!!!!
