The Craic Was Ninety In The Isle Of Man

	  
       C              C                  C                  C 
    Weren't we,  The rare ould stock,  Spent the evening gettin' locked 
     G              G                     F                  F 
    In the Ace of Hearts,      Where the high stools were engaging 
     C                       C                         C                  C 
    Over the Butt bridge,  Down be the dock,  And the boat she sailed at five o'clock 
      G                G           F                          F 
    Hurry lads, Says Whack,   Or before we're there,   We'll all be back 
      C               C                 C              G               C     C 
    Carry him if you can,     Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man 

       C                     C                  C                 C 
    Before we reached the Alexander Base,  The ding dong we did surely raise 
            G                   G 
    In the bar of the ship, We had great sport 
            F                   F 
    As the boat she sailed out from the port 
      C                 C                C              C 
    Landed up in the Douglas Head,    Enquirin' for a vacant bed 
    G                           G            F          F 
    In the dining room,   Got shown,  By a decent woman up the road 
           C             C                 C               G               C    C 
    Lads, Bate it if ya can,     Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man 

            C                 C                 C                 C 
    Next morning went for a ramble round,  And saw the sights a Douglas Town 
     G                   G                   F                    F 
    Then we went for a mighty session,  In a pub they call Dick Darbys 
     C                C                    C                C 
    All got drunk be half past three,  To sober up, Went swimming in the sea 
     G                          G                      F              F 
    Back to the digs for the spruce up,   And while waitin' for the rosie 
        C               C                  C              G               C 
    We all drew up our plan,     Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man 

          C                     C             C                 C 
    That night we went to the Texas Bar, And came back down be horse and car 
     G                  G                 F                  F 
    Met Big Jim and we all went in,  To drink some wine in Yates's 
           C              C                   C                     C 
    The Liverpool girls,  It was said,  Were all to be met in The Douglas Head 
       G                    G                          F                   F 
    McShane was there in a tie and shirt,  With the foreign girls he was tryin' to flirt 
              C                 C               C              G               C   C 
    Sayin',  Hey girls I'm yer man,  Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man 

      C              C                        C                C 
    Whacker fancied his good looks,  With an Isle of Man woman he was struck 
           G              G                           F               F 
    The Liverpool lad was by her side,   As he was throwin' the jar into her 
      C                   C                      C                   C 
    Whacker thought he'd take a chance,   So he asked the quare wan out to dance 
      G                     G                  F               F 
    Round the floor they stepped it out,  To Whack it was no bother 
          C                  C                C              G               C 
    Everythin' was goin' ta plan,   Oh, The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man 

         C                   C 
    The Isle of Man woman fancied Whack 
         C                           C 
    Yer man stood there,  'Til his heads came back 
          G                        G                F              F 
    And whack,  They all whacked inta Whack,  And Whack was landed on his back 
          C              C                C                C 
    The Douglas force arrived as well,  Landed a couple a belts as well 
          G                G              F               F 
    And ended up in the Douglas Jail,   Until the Dublin boat did sail 
      C             C                C              G               C 
    Deported every man,   Oh,  The craic was ninety in the Isle of Man
