W:Poor aul Dicey Riley she has taken to the sup,
W:Poor aul Dicey Riley she will never give it up,
W:It's off each morning to the pop, and then she's in for another little drop,
W:And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley.
W:
W:She walks along Fitzgibbon Street with an independent air,
W:And then its down by Summerhill and as the people stare,
W:She says it's nearly half past one, It's time I went for another little one,
W:And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley.
W:
W:At two pubs close and off she goes as happy as a lark,
W:She'll find a bench to sleep it off down in St. Patrick's Park
W:She wakes at five feeling in the pink, and says, "It's time for another little drink"
W:And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley
W:
W:She travels far to a dockside bar to have another round
W:After one or two or three she doesn't feel quite sound
W:After four she's a bit unstable, after five underneath the table
W:And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley
W:
W:They carry her home at twelve o'clock as they do every night,
W:Bring her inside, put her on the bed and then turn out the light
W:Next morning she goes out of bed, and looks for a cure for her head
W:And the heart of the rowl is Dicey Riley
