The Crack Was Ninety In The Isle Of Man
Traditional Irish Songs

Well, weren't we the rare oul stock spent the evening getting locked
Up in the Ace o hearts where the high stools were engaging
Over the Butt Bridge down the dock the boat she sailed at 5 o'clock
"Hurry boys, now" said Whack or before we're there we'll all be back
Carry him if you can the crack was ninety in the Isle of Man.

Before we reached the Alexander base the ding dong we surely did raise
In the bar of the ship we had great sport
As the boat she sailed out of the port
Landed up in the Douglas head enquired for a vacant bed
The dining room we soon got shown by a decent woman up the road
Lads, eat it if you can and the crack was ninety in the Isle of Man

Next morning we went for a ramble round viewed the sights of Douglas town
Then we went for a nighty session in a pub they call Dick Darbies
We must have been drunk by half past three
To sober up we went swimming in the sea
Back to the digs for the spruce up and while waitin' for the fry
We all drew up our plan
The crack was ninety in the Isle of Man.

That night we went to Texas Bar Came back down by horse
& car Met Big Jim & all went in to drink some wine in Yate's The
Liverpool Judies it was said were all to be found in the Douglas head McShane
was there in his suit & shirt Them foreign girls he was trying to flirt
Sayin "Here girls, I'm your man" & the crack was ninety in
the Isle of Man

Whacker fancied his good looks, on an Isle of Man woman
he was struck But a Liverpool lad was by her side & he was throwin'
the jar into her Whacker thought he'd take a chance he asked the quare
one out to dance Around the floor they stepped it out And to Whack it was
no bother Everything was goin' to plan the crack was ninety in the Isle
of Man

The Isle of Man woman fancied Whack your man stood there
till his mates came back Whack! They all whacked into Whack & Whack
was whacked out on his back The police force arrived as well Banjoed a
couple of them as well Landed up in the Douglas jail Until the Dublin boat
did sail Deported every man The crack was ninety in the Isle of Man
